I Want to Be a Nurse

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 201 People

    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'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?
