    Yes thanks very much, I enrolled yesterday after taking 10 years to decide what I want to do and some soul searching and then working out how to manage it with day care for 2 kids and not working!

    Perhaps next time if you hate your job so much them don't post in a new study thread!!!! Your a real winner.....

    I'm an RN too. With 3 kids and married a policeman. We certainly don't live in poverty. I guess it depends what you do with your time and money. We almost own our house outright, have investment properties etc. I'm not bragging, I just want you to realise that all your dreams can come true in these professions. You basically can't lose your job as a nurse/ policeman so you at least have job security unlike so many at this time.

    So congratulations to you all and good luck!

    Nursing is an awesome job, I've been doing it since I graduated in 1994. It can take you anywhere you want it too. It's not easy, it's hard, yet its rewarding. So get your hands dirty and enjoy all your practicals, get as much variety in as many different wards / specialty area as possible. And most of all, have fun!!!!

    mmm I dont understand the low pay thing either. I am a nurse . Most rn,s earn a great income because of the weekends night shift rates.
    I know some casuals who can do sat, sun, mon, tues, wed for example and earn around
    $85- 90,000 pa. Good luck it will be the best job you will ever have.
    (besides motherhood)

    Thanks everyone for your kind and very motivating words. It took me 2 years once I figured out what I wanted to do to actually apply and feel so so lucky that I was actually offered a place.

    People shouldn't become nurses if all they want is money! I sure as hell wouldn't want to be looked after someone hates their job because of pay! I know many nurses who LOVE their job regardless of how much they earn!

    Also I would be offended if I was your husband! What makes a doctor better then a policeman? People shouldn't marry for money. Policemen have a hard job and they shouldn't be looked down upon because of their paycheck. How disrespectful of you to say such a thing.

    Sorry to go off topic! Congrats OP, wishing you all the best for your study.

    mum2mj- I am the same. I did my EN when I was very young and quit before placement because I didn't have the confidence. Now I have decided to go back and do it. The worst thing for me is maths, I can do my assignments

    Goodluck for 2013 you will be fine and as an external student last year and this year my only advice is being organized! have a diary and make sure you book things in like an appointment That way you won't fall behind.
