I applied to nursing school many months ago. My FH and I have been together a shorter amount of time than it has been since I applied. I have a job in the medical field now but I have always wanted to go to nursing school. I just found out recently that I was selected as an alternate a few months ago and because someone that was selected has declined the opportunity I have been given a chance to start school in January.
Here’s the dilemma, do I go?
We are planning on getting married in May and he was aware that I was trying to get into nursing school before we even got engaged. He has a great job that requires lots of travel, he is usually gone four to eight weeks at a time and because of that he is miserable. It is his wish to quit in the near future and do the same work for himself. He will be able to make his on schedule and travel as little or a much as he would like. I also am very unhappy with my job, simply because it is not what I want to do, it fills like a dead end to me.
He makes enough money to support us comfortably, if I choose to except and start classes in January and he has been more than supportive. He say he knows that I was wanting to go to school if we were together or not and is encouraging me to go now before we become settled in a marriage and I choose to stay in the unhappy job I have now. His reasoning is with a career in nursing I will be happier with my job and not get up everyday dreading work. I will make more money and be able to support us better once he quits his job until he can build his own business. His ultimate goal (and mine too) is for the two of us to spend as much time as possible together.
If I except classes will be monday thru friday 8:00am-5:30pm and clinicals on top of that, so I will be required to quit my job and he has already said that he doesn’t want me to work on the weekends. I have enough money saved to pay for all of my schooling and the wedding but after that I will be very limited.
I feel guilty for entering into a marriage with no job but it is a long time dream that I am finally getting the opportunity to fulfill with his support. What should I do? Help me please!
