personal satisfaction is pretty much it. I'm never really complacent. I'm satisfied and thankful with my success this far, but always ready and willing to expand and move forward. =)
oh yeah- we def know he'll have sig debt. We already do from my schooling, and his schooling he's gone through so far. BUT we're living off my little RN wages now and paying off what we can, so we're pretty used to living on a little bit of nothing. It works for us.
I actually did go ahead and register for the fall so I could get the classes I need. Had already applied for loans just in case I did want to go, because- well, I can't pay out of pocket for it right now.. so unless something changes, I'll be going for it.
part of what pushed me to go ahead and register is the garbage we've had going on with my floor. The patient load is horrible. and my stress level has been going through the roof. It's making the FNP career look a lot more appealing. Yes, stressful, but a different kind of stress depending on the job. So who knows. Just taking it one day at a time. What will come will come. Life is too short, so I'm not going to dwell on it =)
But def keep this thread going. I love to hear other's experiences and input! =) Thanks all!
