 I'm happy being a stay at home mom but would like to help bring in income. I have an xray license and a bachelors degree... but for one there are no xray jobs available in this stupid town that uncle sam sent us too, and for two I have no management experience so my degree is useless. I've been taking nursing classes to apply for an RN program but I dont know if my heart is in it! I really dont wanna be a nurse, I dont think. But I dont know what else to do.... I was looking at a medical assistance program but its about as long as the nursing program. IDK I just dont know what to do with my self. If you were in my situation what would you do?

A)-Say forget it and be a stay at home mom till my kids go to school (they are 15 months and almost 3 years old)

B)-Continue on with nursing school and apply to start next year.

C)-Do a medical assistance program

D)-Continue searching for an xray job but stay home and not worry about it till then?

Life never goes as planned.... I really wanna do xray but I cant create myself a job here...lol

you could try the nurse thing and then decide if you like it or not? and then go from there.  when a x-ray position opens up then quit nursing and go do what you originally wanted to do.

 I figure if I go through all the schooling to be a nurse I will just work parttime doing both. Though I prefer xray. I just dont know, I really would rather just do xray but such is life I guess. RN pays more though. Thanks for your reply!
