hello, i was planning on going back to school to get a degree in nursing, however i am 26 and a single mother now so i'm not sure how it will work out. I thought about just taking it slow and doing one class a semester rather than taking a full load. Or just waiting until my daughter was maybe in her teens, since i heard these years fly by so fast and i want to make sure that her needs are taken care of more than my own. She is five now, but then again i just want to go ahead and get all of this school stuff out of the way, i'm just not sure what the best route is to go. Just wondering how other nurses did it with children in tow. Or did they play the waiting game as well.
