    Just a couple of quick questions and i guess some opinions!

    Im 21, engaged, and have my BS in kinesiology. My man and I haven't set a date yet for a few reasons. He should be leaving for A school in a few months and wants to see where his next "more permanent" station (if you will) will be and I am currently looking to get my RN license (its an associates degree and most programs only take about 16 months to complete). We are wanting to get married this december (he should be done with A school well before then) but the issue is there is a nursing school here at home and it starts in may and wouldn't get don't till next september. We have done long distance for 2 years and would like to not have to do another year and a half.

    So i guess my questions are, should i wait till he gets his orders in A school and then apply for programs in that area?
    And if i decided to do this, with us being married, would his pay financially support us because i will not be able to work while attending nursing school and i do not want to put a financial strain on our marriage during its first year.

    Also a huge lover of Jesus Christ and am trying my best to walk by faith through this journey and not worry about the money but i am just trying to do what is best for the both of us.

    So ANY advice/answers are welcomed and appreciated!

    I can't help you specifically as far as Coast Guard assignments are concerned, but I was military for 26 years with 14 permanent changes of station. My wife (8 year vet) and I raised 4 kids on pay ranging from E-4 to O-4. We both also got out for a time and both survived working two jobs (both of us) and going to school full time (both of us) and having our first child. It certainly can be done.

    Nursing is one of those subjects that seems to be available at many, many schools around the country. I guess you have a couple options. a) start your RN program now, and transfer to another RN program once your husband-to-be gets his first station. b) wait till he gets his assignment and go to school there. Wait, one more: c) start this May in the school you mentioned and be a long distance couple for a while.

    Military marriages are what you (plural) make it. It's team work, and, sad to say, lots of sacrifice for the spouse. But I must note that nursing is one of those degrees that travels easy. I've known many guys in the military whose wives were nurses who worked just weekends and made as much money as their active-duty husbands did!

    Good luck and congrats to you both!

    How transferable are nursing programs? Why not register at the local school and attend until September or December, then look in to transferring to a school at your fiancee's locale? I personally wouldn't risk waiting because you never know where he's going to end up, and you never know what's going to happen with his career.
