    Conflict on continuing my education

    Thank you everyone! I’ve decided to get my dental assisting certificate because i can make decent money over time and I just want something to fall back on. I would love to go back for nursing but I’m nervous financially to take out more loans for something that’s not guaranteed or something I don’t even know I’ll get into again. I’m just happy to have a change of career and job security once I get my certificate. Thank you for your replies!!

    Thankyou for sharing with me it really does mean a lot. I think I’m just going to take time and decide what I think is best for me because family is very important to me and I know with nursing it makes holidays and days off a little more hard, as well as working full time and trying to finish Nursing school. Thankyou again I definitely will need to take some time and think about it because it’s a long and hard process.

    Conflict on continuing my education

    Thankyou everyone!! I actually have most of my prerequisites done due to prior years when I was initially going for nursing and then I had taken a break due to family and finances I’m just nervous about taking out more loans if I don’t get approved for aid I mean it is only community college but it does add up if your someone who doesn’t get aid

    Conflict on continuing my education

    Hi so my fiancé is actually a software engineer, he does make pretty good money but it’s more so enjoying my own career and having job security because I don’t know where we will be 5-20 years from now so if we end up having kids I just want to make sure I’m independently stable in my career plus i am only 24 but i have plans on having kids at 26 so I don’t mind waiting til 27-28 to start, but I definitely don’t want to wait too long!
  5. Hi everyone so I’m writing on here today because I’m having mixed feelings of moving up with Whole Foods (which is my current work place) and just start a family when my fiancé and I get married or get my nursing degree. I have a lot of reasons for one I’m nervous working full time and trying to get the best grades for my prerequisites to apply to the nursing program at my community college, two: I have been with my fiancé for over 8 years and we are getting married this year I am looking to start a family young (26 yo) and nursing will take a few years so I have no idea what to do about that situation and three I already owe so much money in student loans from my previous years. I am so conflicted so if I can get some opinions that would be great I have mixed feelings if I will even like nursing, if it’s worth spending more money, if having a family is more important right now. I also feel safer having a degree because of job security rather than not having one I’m so confused (I would love to be a neonatal nurse though )
