nursing school????

I am thinking about going to school for lpn or maybe even RN. Im geting really serious about doing it ...But I have a 2 yr old and a husband that works alot of hours . Have any of u gone to nursing school with young kids? How did u make it work with school being so time consuming? Did u still get house work done? Spend time with kids? Im just worried all that will go on the back bunner when I start school.

  • My friend went to school and worked, and then she got pregnant. Managed to keep working, keep going to school.. and even stay involved with extra tasks. Now, I'm not saying she's not a super woman, but if she can tackle that, I think you can go back to school :) Good Luck!

  • i have 3 kids under 4 and go to school full time. it is doable, very difficult, but if you are motivated you can do it for sure. Motivation is key. A good support system and reliable daycare as well. Good luck mama(-=. PS..I'm going for my CNA
