    if you can find an online nsg program part-time, i'd research that route.
    i wouldn't recommend full time now, at this point in your dtr's life.
    you only get one shot at that.

    best of luck.

    As an older adult with two children ages 17 and 11, I wish that I had gone to nursing school while they were YOUNGER...they need me more NOW than when they were just four and five...so thats something to consider...also can you find a part time program anywhere in your vicinity?
    LaughingRN and leslie :-D like this.

    I agree with those who recommend making the most of your daughter's childhood; at this point, you have absolutely NO idea how quickly it flies past, but take it from those of us with grown-up children - if you blink, you miss it!

    Go full steam ahead for the doula position, and if you don't get it, and need the extra money, look for something else part time. You don't want someone else having all the pleasure of watching your daughter grow up, do you?

    I think I will pursue the Doula position, I love it so far! I would be very happy with it, it sounds a little promisi.g, and I can be home more with my Little One

    I ended up going to school when my daughter (now 4) was a baby. After the LPN year I had a choice to continue on for another year or to stop at the LPN stage. I chose to stop at this point and time. I was working part time, and doing school full time. When I was home I was doing homework/studying. I am a LPN now which allows me to make alot more than I did as a CNA but to also concentrate on my daughter. I second the thought that they are only young once. I plan to go back when my daughter is grown or doesn't need me as much.
