I am just waiting to get in! I am in the CNA program right now while I wait. Good luck to you! You will make it work!
Well I finished about 3 years ago but I'm starting again for more letters behind my name... I'm doing this all 'self paced' through a college in NY. Anyway all I can tell you is that it is no cake walk... but I'm sure it's doable. However, in my experience, there would be NO way to do this without having both kids in daycare or with a caregiver about 5 days a week... typically you have class 3 days a week and then clinicals the other 2 days. So I'd be prepared for that. Also the curriculum and schedule is super rigid, there's no room for flexibility at all which would be hard with 2 kiddos. But like I said I'm sure it's doable, it may not be a blast lol but I'm sure you'll do fine ;)
Not in Nursing school... But in school full time and working 2x a week. Good luck! :)
I am a current nursing student with an 8 mo (I'm lurking... baby fever)
Anyway- Go for it! It is hard to balance everything and my school is super super demanding. But it is totally worth it! Right now my daughter won't remember that "Mom had to study" and that my nose is buried in my numerous text books. I think that the younger they are, the better.
Another point is...at orientation, they pounded into our heads that we would have "NO time for [our] selves" and that our "life would be consumed." and it EASILY could but make time for family because you will go crazy if you don't.
The first semester is the hardest because you have to change the way you think, but after that and when you get into the swing of things, it really isn't that bad!
