Should I stay or should I go???

I have no children yet, DH and I have been TTC for 2 years with no success, so keep that in mind when answering this question. I currently live in arizona and am in school to be an RN, but the waiting list is so long that I won't graduate until either december 2014 or may 2015. Right now I'm visiting my mother in florida and I saw a commercial for a school that I can start in September and I will graduate in 16 months, in february 2012. The problem is that I would be separated from my husband the whole time and no we couldn't afford for him to come here with me. He has a wonderful job and can't find a job in florida. I'd go to school monday through friday all day so I wouldn't be able to leave here, but he could fly here about every 6 weeks. We have a very strong relationship and were separated for 3 years in the past and our relationship stood strong. My question is, do you think it's a good lifelong decision to do this?

  • It sounds like an appealing way to go....but it's between you and your husband to decide.

  • That's a tough one. Which is more important? Finishing school faster or conceiving faster? It seems crazy that you can finish school 3 whole years faster in Florida than in Arizona. Have you looked into other nursing programs in AZ that might result in just a little longer commute for you that might finish sooner?

  • If you anb dhe think it's a good decision, what does it matter what anyone here says? **smile** Check out the school thoroughly though.

  • I'd say go do it and you can always start having children after you graduate. It would give you a 2 - 3 yr jump on your life's plans.

  • all of the schools in phoenix use the same waiting list, so no, there are no other options there. and thank you, I definitely plan on doing serious research on this school since it will be such a big decision.
