I was just wanting to see how many of you students were moms and to see how you guys get along being in class with your kids. I have two boys 8 and 4. I will start my final semester of pre reqs in January and now I am a little nervous about fitting the full time program into my life. Can anyone tell me what a normal day is like as far as time wise in class? My kids will both be in school when I start the program I'm just wondering if the classes usually start at 7 and go to 3 or what. I am doing the LPN program now and later I will do the bridge over. Any input will help.

Hi I am also an RN who decided to go for my BSN when the hospital I have worked at for 20 years decided to offer the program for free as long as you give them 2 years of service when you are finished. I thought that it would be an excellent opportunity for me to advance my career now that my kids are 14, 16, and 18. I got my ADN before I had them, so it was very easy. But I would never of dreamed of school when they were little. I am a bit of a perfectionist and would have become frustrated if I could not allow myself the appropriate amount of time needed for a certain class. My program now does alot of online courses, and tele courses, so actual in class participation is limited. We have forums somewhat like this, where we communicate with the teacher and each other about our subject issues. This way we all have more time at home. I am planning to go to Drexel Univ. in Philadelphia after this for my Master's degree. They have recently changed their program to ALL online. For me that is the best way to go. Look into it if you have not considered that option.
