I've been a stay-at-home-mom for the past 5 years and my marriage is ending. I've taken a few college classes but never finished. I'm 23 years old. I'm wondering if I should just take a short, 10 week dental assisting class, then start working full-time as a dental assistant. Or go to school full-time and work on my general studies to get into a 2 year program (probably nursing or radiology.) If I choose to go to school full time I'd have to move in with my parents. They WANT me to do this...but I just feel guilty about it. If I choose to go for a degree, it will take me atleast 4 years to finish school. If you were in my situation, what would YOU do?

Don't pass up this opportunity to further your education.

This isn't guilt. It's pride.<br />
<br />
Don't allow pride to limit your ability to provide for yourself and your child. Consider the long-term results and take the path that leaves you with more options and income.<br />
<br />
There is no dilemma, unless your parents are unbearable to be around and would hold this over your head and use it to try to control you. Even then you should probably suck it up unless they're truly toxic.<br />
<br />
What your parents are offering is clearly your best option, although you should plan/negotiate a way for you to have some kind of income while doing it.

go back to school...cna (certified nursing assitant) its a relativly short course offered at most community colleges and tech schools... there is a huge shortage of nurses and you have ability to move up to registered nurse and related feilds

Get a marketable education. Nursing sounds like a degree that will always be in demand, especially with the baby boomers sliding into their later years.

I'm talking R.N., not nurses aide.

Best Answer

I'd do whatever it took to get into the nursing program. When you graduate, you'll be in high demand EVERYWHERE. I think that's your bet for supporting your child.
