HATED nursing school. Hated it. So many stupid hoops to jump through. Major personality differences with uber anal profs. Bleh.
Graduated after 2 years with ANOTHER bachelors degree and went straight into a NICU new grad program. Then the real AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! began. Holy steep learning curve! But, again, I stuck it out and I'm still in NICU almost 8 years later.
And, I'm supporting our family of 3 on my income : And, I'm helping babies and parents. I have an awesome job! :
So that's my story. If you got through it, kudos.
I may go back to school to be PNP/NNP when the kids get a bit older. Then I'll be right back here asking you all how to get through school with kids.
I think I will enjoy being a nurse, though, and I think it will be great to find employment easily & let DH go back to school or shop around for a new career if he wants to.
Happy to hear that you like NICU That's definitely in my top three choices!
