I'm actually a little jealous :D I'll have spent like 5 years in school in a highly competitive program only to likely not be able to get a job and if I do, it'll maybe pay 20 an hour if I'm lucky lol.

I am in school for my doctorate, but I am working as a Nurse Practioner and making over 80k.



It wasn't hard to get a job but it was hard to find one that would pay me what I asked for and would let me leave at a certain time for my classes at night or if I had an early class to let me leave for it. I do a work load of around 60 a week and take my classes during the evening and work on my dissertation during the weekend.



I have been in college since I was 17 and I just turned 29, and I am working on completing the rest of it for a focus in psychology.



My goal is to become a PMH-APRN and focus on work in a research setting.

well I've only done part time teaching so far with a mentor teacher-I haven't graduated so I have never had my own classroom or taught full time. but yes I do, but at the same time, its not really the job of my dreams. I always wanted to go to law school, but after having a baby I chose to go into a more "family friendly" and realistic field. but who knows where life will take me or what I'll end up doing. at least I'll have a degree to build on :lol:

I just got my associates a couple months ago for Psychology. It took me about 3 1/2 years to obtain since I had to do all my generals and stuff. Working towards my Bachelors now and I wont be stopping until I have at least a Masters. My end goal is to either be a licensed Psychologist or a Correctional Counselor.
