I am so frustrated, depressed, and confused as to what to do with myself.I have always wanted to be a nurse since I was little. I started an lpn program in 2003 while working full-time as a single parent. I got all the way to the end and failed my last class. That really devastated me and I just didn't go back. I was kicking myself for not be able to quit the job I had at the time but I had a mortgage.
So, several of my friends have went on to finish the lpn program and some have went to complete the lpn to rn program. Well, I have been taking classes in preparation for the rn program but my situation is very different. I am married and have had another child. I work part-time and totally dependent on my husband for support. We don't get along and have very little in common, he doesnt respect me, he doesnt do anything with me or the kids and I am just sick of it. He does what he wants and never gives me a break from the kids.
Well, besides the obvious I really want to go back to the lpn program because it is only a year long and I can work while trying to obtain my rn degree or I can wait until my youngest is a little older before returning for my rn. My question is should I forget school and just get a job and get out or should I go on to lpn school, save some money and get out when I am financially in a better situation for me and my kids? I don't want to be using my husband or staying in a relationship for convenience, but I have to be able to support my kids. Please give your honest advices because I have prayed for guidance because I don't want to make the wrong decisions.:crying2:
