    I'm conflicted. I want to go to school

    for LPN, but I also want to keep the job I'm with now. money isn't the issue. I'm not in debt, and my car will be paid for soon. I'm very worried about taking this leap. Has anyone been in my shoes? Is there any advice you can give?

    So, my teacher suggested over the phone

    that I find a steady job before I make my Italian restaurant. So I thought of what I wanted to do. I want to become a pediatric nurse OR a family doctor.

    I would help literally anyone no matter if it was advice, someone getting hurt, or if someone needed a friend. Being a nurse is my goal and if I become one one day, I would be beyond astounded. Not only is nursing a interesting field but my teacher told me she doesn't want me to...
