  • If that is what you want to do and a career choice than by all means go for it!

  • why not? do u already have ur LPN? cause if not then it will take u longer than a year to get ur RN, but if u can work out school and daycare and all that then why not? it will only be helping the family out in the long run! and imagine how proud he would be of u when he comes home to find u have a degree!

  • I am all for getting your education...and it will keep you occupied. Then when he comes home he will be so proud that his wife was able to get her degree on her own. It will give you such a feeling of accomplishment...which BTW will be totally deserved. I'm with ya tho...I am going to get my RN next year and it is really nerve wracking.

  • GO FOR IT! You’ll be happy that you did. It’ll keep you busy so you’re not preoccupied with everything going on wherever he’s stationed. And you’ll have a strong career. For your sanity, consider going PT. Some colleges offer day care. There might be a waiting list, though. Good Luck!!!!
