    Nursing school worth the debt?

    Hello, I am a 39 year old mother of 6 kids who are all in school now. I work as a MA but have seriously thought about going to school for nursing. I would have to basically start from scratch. I have put it off because kids were still young and I didn’t want to take out loans. But now I feel like if I wait anymore I won’t ever do it. I can’t imagine being a 60 MA making nothing knowing I had the potential to do more. Do you guys think the ship has sailed for me? I HAVE to work and go to school. Is it worth getting into debt for? Can I realistically pay it off? I preach to the kids about not getting loans and getting scholarships and financial aid...now I feel like I would be a hypocrite. Any advice?
