I work nights m-f for $11/hour. I am thinking about going to nursing school. I would be done in 3 years. My dh is disabled. We have 3 kids. I know I could make way more being a nurse, but I would hardly ever get to see my family between working full-time and schooling full-time. Cutting back to part-time work is not an option for financial reasons. What would you do if you were me? Oh my kids are 16, 15, and 8 if that matters.Answer Question

I would go for it. Chances are you will be eligible for the max amount of loans and aid so there will be cash left over and you can cut some hours at work. One thing with nursing is some hospitals give you sign on bonuses and if you work in some areas they have tuition reimbursement programs. I know a girl who graduated from the nursing program at the college I went to and went on to a major university hospital to work she got a $6000 sign on bonus, tuition reimbursement, plus medical dental eye coverage and her pay was awesome. She loves her job too. It was well worth it.
