It depends on your personal life.
If you are young and have no kids, no spouse, it's a breeze.
If you are with kids and a spouse, you can almost forget it. Some colleges will push nursing program applicants to the back of the recommendation list simply because you are labeled as a non traditional student, regardless of your grades. Statistics show once you fit into this category, you will probably never make graduation.
You really need a great support group at home, if you are a non traditional student and have no support at home, it will be incredibly hard.
