Totally worth it. I went to school to be a cna when my oldest was 4 and second was 1. Loved it and decided to be a nurse. I went to school and worked and became an LVN. We recently had another baby who is now 7 mo old and I am pursueing my RN. My point is no matter how you do it, it can be done and it is VERY rewarding, income wise and career wise it is satisfying to help others in need. If that is your calling in life...than answer! You will be glad you did and congrats on your accomplishment you have many more to come!

I know it's hard in this state of the economy, but hopefully when things get better, you will be one step ahead of the game. Second is that you probably learned something you didn't know before, and that's a plus too. The 3rd thing is that you might like your work enough to decide to go back to school and become a nurse. No matter what, getting certified will put you up one rung on the career ladder. Be proud of your accomplishments. I am happy to see another another woman doing something she can be proud of.
