SS & workwayless,Unfortunately, here in Oz RN's make crap money - the most I can expect without getting into a management role is about $50k. And that's AUD, not USD. Including working weekends & public holidays etc, which doesn't do much for a social life! As for positions like nurse anaesthetist, they don't exist over here.Plus, I hate my work!! Simple fact at the moment is, I can't see myself doing this for very much longer without going mad. The hours are horrible, the pay isn't much better, & I need to find another vocation. May have something to do with the fact that I've just completed my 2 mandatory nights per month, & the old body clock takes about a week to adjust these days!!Thanks for the words of encouragement though. I think what I needed was just someone to put the figures into print for me, so I could see it was doable.At the moment, I am saving $500 per month, but like I said, that is what my income will reduce by when I start studying. However my entertainment bills will also decrease, by virtue of the fact that I won't have time to go out! So I'll gain a little, but won't be able to stash much for 2 years - figuring that by doing this & studying full-time, it will be sooner when I can have a proper income again.Primm
