nursing school is simply put CRAZY! i started out when my son was 11 weeks old, he is now 5 years old and i am in my last year(thank god!). i guess its all about sacrifices. i didnt want him to be in daycare so i stayed at home all day, and worked and went to school. yuck. so basically no life but i keep telling myself it will all be worth it. (right??
now that i only have to work and go to school since he is in school it seems sooo much easier. some teachers are evil, others are easier when they know you have kids. clinicals you MUST attend. your kids sick, you go, your sick you go(yeah that one makes sense right). one thing that has totally helped out alot of my friends in class is being a cna. problem is you are looking at about ten bucks an hour and who can survive on ten dollars an hour!!!! and whatever you do take a&p beforehand!!!! i spent a year and half taking all my pre's for this program and the bsn program that i am going to straight after. another thing i found that works, dont study at home, there are always going to be phonecalls you get, dr phil on oprah
or something that catches your attention, i find dunkin doughnuts the best
they are open 24/7 and you can get all the caffeine you are going to need!
