Making the right decision??????

  1. Hi, it is me again.:uhoh21: I just recently took the entrance test for the admission into the nursing program and I am having feelings of happiness and sadness at the same time. I was working in a factor for seven years when I was laid off three weeks ago.:angryfire Me and my husband were in the process of trying to have a baby when I got laid off. Now no job and no baby...Having a child was on the "front burner" until I was unexpectantly laid off. Now nursing is on the "front burner." I am somewhat depressed about putting our baby making on hold, but I have to go into nursing because it may be my "calling". Besides I am considered the "bread winner" in my house and I have a great feeling of pressure on my shoulders to enter nursing and to pass with flying colors...

    I know that I want to be a nurse without a doubt, I am just sad that babies will have to wait yet again....can someone cheer me up..my clock is ticking.LOL

    You're still young - and school is SO much easier when you don't have the frustrations and responsibilities of parenthood at the same time! Not that children aren't an absolute joy... but they sure make life a bit more difficult sometimes (I have two boys I love to death, but they drive me crazy - ages: 5 and 2)

    Sorry I don't have any more sage advice... best of luck in your decision making.

    Hi. I am kind of in the same boat as you. I took the pre-RN exam a month ago and passed but now I am waiting to hear if I am accepted to the program. My hubby and I have been trying to have a baby for about 15 months now. I have had alot of fertility issues and it was when I was sitting in my fertility doc's office this past January that it really hit me that I should pursue a career in nursing rather than working on a master's in psychology. I just had surgery last week for the endometriosis and I think that when I follow up with my doc I will delay trying again until late summer. Feel free to e-mail me anytime (ValMChapman@aol.com). Maybe we can lean on each other since we both want a family so badly.
