    I've been married for almost two years now and am starting to get the baby fever! I just appiled to the nursing program for the fall of 2005. For all the mother's out there, how hard is it to get through nursing school and have a child? My husband really wants to start trying now but I'm really nervous about how I'll be able to manage a newborn and nursing. Please let me know your stories and experiences!
    I would suggest either having your baby and waiting to start the nursing portion of the program until the baby is older (maybe take the pre-req's in advance) or get nursing school out of the way and then get pregnant.

    Nursing school is very tough under the best of circumstances. You will work your butt off not only academically but physically and emotionally as well. That's not healhy for a pregnancy.

    I started school when my child (then) was three. That was a good age.
