Monique's advice is excellent. Excellent. I'm going to add a bit more. Poverty line for a family of 4 is $23k. Most good facilities want a BSN. With no other education, it's usually a 4 year progeam if finished on schedule. To get an advanced practice degree, you *must* have a BSN first. It's very very difficult to work at all while in nursing school. It's heavy full time plus. NP is a good paying job, but not a guaranteed 6 figures. High 5 in most cases and 6 in high cost of living areas or with more experience (or if you are paid in production). There wasn't really a question here, but I hope I've offered some sort of information that will help you make an informed decision. Good Luck!

Ok I think rn is a great career but if your the breadwinner and you are well below poverty how will you a. Afford schooling? B. how will your family survive? Is there any way you could move up in your career now? Nursing is a rigid and tough career and easy to fail at unfortunately :(! So just think things through.
