KsStorm my thoughts are with you, can your husband take care of your child while you work? maybe you both work but differnt shifts?

I'm also living in a rural economically depressed area with very few jobs...I wish you luck.

For those considering a Nursing career just because you can make a living wage, make sure this is what you want to do. It's hard work and rewarding but you can burn out (I did). Patient care is difficult and you have to really like what your doing and have a real passion for it, otherwise find something else like Rad Tech or Physical Therapist...they pay well but aren't quite so demanding. Also, remember most nurses have to work nights and weekends if you aren't senior staff.

Think before you leap, I can't tell you how many BSN's I worked with that hated their job because they were not exposed to actual nursing care until their junior year and by that time it's too late. Consider working as a nurses aid to make sure this is what you want. I'm not trying to discourage anyone, but its not for everyone.

I wanted to move out of Tucson ever since I got laid off because of lack of jobs, but have no money to live off of when I arrive in a new city. You need at least 2-3 months of savings until you find work. Oh well! hope I find some PT work somewhere, but as I always say I will NEVER work for a call center!"
