Hi all, I'm new to this site. I've been reading for a few days now and fell in love so I decided to join.
I'm currently at GCC taking pre-reqs aiming for ASU. I have quite a few to go. I know I need to keep my gpa up but it's so hard being that I have 3 kids and I'm a stay at home mom & student.
My question is, What are your opinions on going to school while taking care of a family? It's tough at times but I know it can be done. Any of you did it and if so how was it for you? Were you able to maintain good grades? Any advice would help.
My kids & my fiance' are my motivation but I guess I just want to hear anyone else's experience that could give me some encouragement. I just need to hear some success stories from other moms I guess.

It most certainly can be done.
I completed the ADN program at Gateway Community College, then immedietly enrolled in the 14 month RN-BSN program at Grand Canyon University, all while raising two young boys, and working full time outside of the home. (and don't worry, A & P II was much easier than A & P I. I took them both at Estrella, so PM me if you want the name of some good instructors.)
