Okay, honestly....do you like what you're doing right now with your current job? How is it "wasting your time"? You're making money from the job, right? I don't see how that's a waste of time. I don't recommend going into something that you don't want to do (just cause your hubby wants you to). Did you like the CNA course that you completed? Were you able to get lots of clinical practice to get the "feel" for it? It's a hard job to do! I, too, have my certification, but haven't actually worked as one. I am now going through the nursing program (and so far, it isn't anything like being a CNA). If you want to be a teacher - you should look into going to school for that!! It's never too late to decide "what you wanna be when you grow up" and then achieve it! Don't let someone push you into doing something you'll be unhappy with; it's your life - do what you feel is best! good luck!
