    And an extra question, is it possible to be pregnant while going to nursing school? I would think it would be difficult but I have known a few people who were. Some gave birth in between class breaks or delivered soon after graduation.

    How long have you been a nurse? 8 years (LVN 2006, RN 2010)

    What age did you become one? I was 25. I'll be 33 in a few weeks.

    Are you married? I am single, never-married.

    Do you have children? I have no children.

    And an extra question, is it possible to be pregnant while going to nursing school?
    Three of my classmates were pregnant while attending nursing school. Two of the women were young, in their 20s, healthy, and had spouses, so they gave birth with no complications and returned to school without missing any time. The third woman was middle-aged and smoked heavily, and gave birth to an underweight baby girl. She did not return to school after having the baby.

    So it is possible to be pregnant in nursing school, but I would not recommend it.

    How long have you been a nurse? What age did you become one? 11 years; I was 23

    Are you married? 13 years next month

    Do you have children? Five; my oldest is almost 12, my youngest is 6 months

    And an extra question, is it possible to be pregnant while going to nursing school? Do the math. My oldest was born the first day of spring break, and I took an extra week off. The week I came back I had patho exams on respiratory and renal--I had missed one the week I was off, and we had another the following week. It was TOUGH! I read my notes to her instead of "Goodnight Moon." The instructors were able to schedule my first clinical rotation before she was born, and other one when she was about a month old. I worked PT as a CNA and went back 2 months postpartum. I breastfed.

    I am in the middle of an RN-BSN completion right now and have a baby. I would have just taken a couple of weeks off like I did w/ my ADN program, but I needed a varicella vaccine to do the practicum that started while I was pregnant. I had chicken pox as a child but wasn't immune, and I couldn't have the vaccine while pregnant. I took advantage of the time to finish up my generals, which I was able to do online. My husband's parents help us a ton during the week, and my husband is Mr. Mom every other weekend while I work. He's a CFO so works mostly regular office hours. He does travel a lot and schedules trips during my days off. I'm breastfeeding this baby too. It helps that this program I'm in is more geared towards working adults. My ADN program was really tough. It was very doable with one baby though.

    It's definitely a juggling act, but so worth it!

    Ive been a nurse for over 5 years. I became one when I was 28. I am married and have multiple kids.

    I was pregnant in school. Had my first during my prereqs and returned to summer session with a 2 week old in tow to a computer class, sat in the back and formatted while baby slept. The next one happened during nursing school and I graduated and passed nclex while pregnant. Chewed zofran like skittles throughout the last semester of school to prevent puking daily but I passed. It's doable!

    Oh, I should add that I did quit my CNA job the final semester of nursing school. I only worked 2-3 days a week, but it was just too much with Advanced Nursing lecture/clinicals and my final internship.

    Thanks for the replies!

    I think I can do it, but it scares me too. I don't want to flunk out of nursing school for being sick or something. Now, I have never been the best test taker to begin with, is that an automatic fail for nursing school?

    Not automatic fail, but you might just have to work harder. My nursing class exams (as opposed to A&P, micro etc.) were mostly multiple choice questions where you had to choose the MOST correct answer. It wasn't always clear-cut. But that's what the NCLEX is like, and taught me how to think for the exam.
