 You make me want to cry!  I'm so nervous about this journey and will just be starting the two more years (post pre-requisite courses) to complete my degree, this fall.  At times I feel discouraged and Nursing school is just starting.  Thank you for posting this and giving us hope.  I will have two children under 4 when I start in the Fall and this makes me feel so encouraged. 

I am proud of you!  Way to go and forage the way for the rest of us:)  CONGRATS!!!

So jealous!!! Im just about to finish up my second semester of the nursing program and wondering WTH have I got myself into LOL. I have three daughters (3,5,9) & often wonder if the sacrifice is worth it!!! I'm hanging on by a thread but hanging in there!!! I finally broke down and told my husband who works 6 days a week 8-8 that the house will NOT be clean for another year lol. Of course I still have to STRAIGHTEN but it can't be spotless all the time! I was a SAHM for three years before starting school so its a major difference. I'm really trying to learn to juggle my time. Any pointers?!

I was too a SAHM.it was hard cause the hubby and kids were so use to me always being there.time management is imp. I always had a schedule of what I was doing on what day. I took breaks when studying to clear my mind sit a few min with the family and Power naps!!omg I lived on power naps when I had to stay up all night studying I would take a studybreak and get in bed sleep for an hour and then get back up.they really helped.also when I picked the kids up after school I would take them to the park they would run and play get sleepy then home for homework bath and bed. I had them on a schedule so by 8 they were settled in (usually?lol)and I xould get a power nap then study time.it was crazy but well worth it...good luck:)

i have a husband who has two jobs so i know i wont get much help around the house...  and we will have to hire a babysitter while i go to school.  hopefully we can find someone we can trust, i know in the end of all the hard work, it will pay off.  im going to miss my kids, ive been with them 24/7 since day one and i hope i dont miss any firsts with my five month old but i keep telling myself, im doing it for them

You inspire and give me hope that I'll be able to attend school, work and be a mother. I only have 2 and I'm getting nervous about starting with CNA training. I hope to attend LPN and then RN degree :D
