I Want to Be a Nurse

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 183 People

    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?
