Have any of you moms been to nursing school while juggling taking care of kids and house? I am going back to school next week. I have taken all of my pre-requisites I will be working on a few of my co-reqs this semester. I am debating on applying for a few different nursing programs the beginning of next year. The only reason im kind of dragging my feet about it is my husband is working out of state. He has been in North Dakota since June and will likely be moved to Wyoming in the next month. I'm nervous about trying to balance such a demanding load of school work and 3 very demanding boys and keeping the house running. I guess I'm Just looking for advice from any of you moms that have gone back to school. I know it's going to be hard I just have a feeling that I really have no idea how hard it's going to be.
Girl you already have 3 full-time jobs. why do you want another one? Who is going to take care of the kids when at school and studying, etc? How long is the program? If your nursing program is anything like mine was (BSN 3 yrs + 2 yrs prereqs) you wont be much of a parent. Can you wait til the youngest one is in kindergarten? At least that way they will be occupied part of the day and you will have more time. I dont mean to be a downer it just sounds like the kids need you esp with your husband gone.
