Going back to school after a divorce

Hello everyone:

I run into several suddenly single divorcees every school semester. These are gals who thought they had their whole lives planned out, until they got the shock of their lives when their hubbies wanted out. They decided to go back to college and get the degree that they are sure will set them on a more financially sound future.

As a college professor, I think they are on the right track. Usually they are getting into nursing, which I understand is an in-demand field that should keep them financially afloat. These ladies deserve kudos for what they are doing and I would like to dedicate this blog to them.

From my observation, they are the following:


Serious students

Managing their family, their home, their work, and their school work without breaking a sweat. (Well, maybe a little sweat, but let’s call it “glistening” instead.)

They get assignments in on time; those assignments are done correctly the first time.

They do not make excuses for why they can’t do their work. As the commercials say, they “just do it.”

They are ┬ásometimes broken in spirit but I’m telling them right now that I have the utmost respect for what they are doing.

They are winners, no matter what their ex says.

You can do this, ladies! Go for it and do not be weary in doing well!
