Hi all! I am needing some advice and some encouragement. I am a 27 year old Mom of 4 children, ages 7, 4, 17 months and 2 months. I have been wanting to go to nursing school for about 5 or 6 years now, but the timing never seemed right. My husband is very encouraging and wants me to go fulfill my dream of going to school and becoming a nurse. Over the past few days I have realized that I'm making excuses for me not to go back to school. I have been a CNA for 7 years now, so I do have experience in the medical field. I know that it is going to be very hard work and very time consuming, for I have many friends who have gone through nursing school. My husband is willing and wants to help once I start, but I worry it's going to take a toll on my family, and ultimately, my marriage. I may also have to do a part time program that will take 4 years to get my associates, instead of 2 years. Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated, or if anyone has been through what I am about to go through. Thanks in advance!!
