I have always wanted to do this and got as far as getting my associate degree in nursing. I have always been in OB/ post-partum or peds and I really feel the need to go back to school. BUT, I have children ranging from 3 months to 16 years. My son will be a senior next year and if I go back, I won't be able to work extra to help pay for his college. I hear the program is great but vigorous. I do plan on going part-time but I am concerned with the week long stay the first semester since I will still be breastfeeding my baby. Has anyone else gone through this program with kids and being older? I only work per-diem and usually put in 1 8hour day a week, so I am thinking I shouldn't have a problem doing the course load required for part-time.
I plan to take the women's health practitioner program and I worry about being 44 when I graduate. Will anyone want to hire me at this age with no practitioner experience? And of course, I worry about getting a loan of about 33,000 at my age as well. Oh, why does this have to be so hard?
ANY advice would be helpful.....Thanks
