I want to become a police officer and always have but..

Since having children my desire to become a nurse has increased. I am going to start school up again and I am thinking about taking POST that way I atleast can apply to be a police officer. Then start my classes for nursing, I know that with three kids it is going to be a little difficult and i haven't yet told my husband. I have to take my written test for police academy next week he knows I am going to school but not sure what I will be doing.. If you have children how did you do school part time? My husabnd works full time so it will be an adjustment..

  • I stuck my daughter in daycare while I went to school. I only went 20 hours a week so it's not like they are there are all day. I also got a job after school where I could bring her to help pay for daycare.

  • I do classes during the day while he is in school. I have two part time jobs that are flexible in hours so I can work around my school schedule and my sons schedule. It is hard, but it is doable. Good luck!!
