  1. Lots of big changes at my house... I got accepted to nursing school! I have 4 classes left and I will have completed my RN degree. I have a 4.0 and I am loving the program. I am working full time as a 911 response EMT. They just made me a supervisor as well. I love my job! Last summer my husband announced he was moving out. He stated he wasn't in love with me anymore. I now know he was talking to another woman for over a year. He has an apartment across town and I have filed for divorce. I have full custody of the kids and he sees them sporadically a few times a month. So yeah. Single mom of 6, working full time, and going to school full time. There is definitely some belt tightening happening at our house these days. I plan to sell the house this spring. We will split the equity and then I will be moving with the kids to something smaller that I can better afford. Until then I'm just doing what I need to do to make the ends meet.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about the marriage, but you are a determined woman that has a plan, wow! I know from experience the stress of nursing school - I loved it but it consumed a lot of time between classes, clinicals, and studying, but it was worth it in the end. Nursing provides sooooo many opportunities! Such a broad field, with good income potential, too. None of our clinicals were held in Long Term Care, but I ended up working in LTC/Rehab and have loved the work, but there is often overtime involved. Like an 8 hour day is 9 or 10, a 12 hour day is 13 or 14...it depends on being short staffed or getting admissions. Currently I have a Mon-Fri job, 8 - 4:30, but in reality work 50+ hours a week, and so do the other nurses who are on the floor (I now am a manager and do wound care). I think I need to work somewhere that closes! Like a doctor's office or a school nurse position...Anyway, congrats on loving school and your job - you are going to excel wherever. you land!
