my family is going to suffer because of my choices!!!
I really failed my kids and family. I should have went straight to school after high school instead of parting and playing around with my friends that led me to my first pregnancy. Now that I have a hospital job and im ready to go back to school to get my nursing degree, i enrolled in a community college by my house so that i can take some online classes until DH is done with his schooling, and then I can go to classes at the campus. Well AFTER i go up to school and take my placement test, i call my employeer and tell him im in school cause i needed to know about the tuition reimbursement and if I qualified. He tells me NO because they dont hire ADNs( nurses with associates degrees) and that they online hire BSN nurses... I dont have 4-6 years to wait to get my license. My family needs me to be making money NOW!!
not hurting for money or anything. We're doing OK right now but we want
a house, another car, retirement funds, ect. And I cant get that on my
$11 hourly rate. Now my family is stuck in apartments for a long time
because of the decisions i chose to make as a teen. I dont want to go to
school for Nursing as it is. I want to actually get out of healthcare
but thats all that my work history is in and I dont want to
jeopardize(sp) my current hospital job because i waited so long to get
in one. So sticking in the healthcare is what i want to do just not
nursing but I dont want to waste money going to a school for anything
else but nursing and not have a job doing that at my hospital... because
its hard to get hired with no experience. Nobody wants to hire a rookie
straight out of school. Im really torn right now and feel awful and
weak because I am now stuck in apartments and my kids deserve better and
I was to foolish to give it to them.
