M H's Bio

Currently I work in the nursing field, for awhile now I have thought about becoming a trucker and finally decided that I will, but have a few things I must take care of first before I do that. Things such as paying bills that can be paid off for starters. Planned on continuing in the field I am already in (nursing) and paying off bills and doing a few more things before I do this, may take awhile before I am ready to start a new career, but honestly can't wait to start. Hoping to get things situated in 3-5 years. Currently for future refs in case it doesn't show what year I typed this, I done it in 2018 of January.

Wish me luck!

UPDATE: Nursing didn't work out. Applied and tried for becoming a RN. Failed it. Doing what I been wanting to do for a while now. Becoming a trucker. October 2022

IDMtnGal, I will try to put this in General category. Sorry about that, wasn't aware it should be in there and I will put it in my Bio.

Starting School the 13th of this month, need advice

Hello!

I start trucking school October 13th. I already have my Commercial Learners Permit. The course is 8 weeks (or less, depending on me - I was told this). I'm from the southern Alabama region. My husband has been a trucker for over 21 years. Recently he went back OTR (he found someone else who pays more). We have a 6-year-old daughter. Before I signed up for classes, he was working local, home every night. Originally, I was going to be the one to go OTR (One of us needs to make sure we are home enough for our child and to look over our home - We have animals to care for too) and he was going to be the one who was home nearly every day. Things have changed. I paid for my schooling about two months ago, then my husband got another job that was no longer local, but OTR. Now I'm at a loss, because it will have to be me that will need to be local or at least local as possible (I don't mind being out for a few short days, but like I said, I need to have my child closer to me. Since husband isn't home) The school said they will have recruiters available, and I had planned on looking at their options. If they don't have a recruiter who is local (or somewhat local) for me, can someone point me in the right direction? I thought maybe driving a dump truck or cement truck, but most that I have seen have min. exp. of 1 year (or more). I have thought about school bus, but (please don't hate me) I hate dealing with other people's kids - other than my own.
