I am currently a practical nursing student, and I just found out recently that I am about a month and a half pregnant. I really want to be able to finish school, and I know the final decision is up to the school, but I was wondering if anyone else was pregnant (or knew someone who was) while in nursing school
or while working as a nurse. I know it will be a lot of hard work, but I don't want to quit even though this baby is now my first priority. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I was pregnant during my last year of nursing school
. I was also 9 months pregnant when I graduated and did the pinning ceremony (want to talk about a whole lot of white fabric!). I missed no clinicals, not one. I also never missed class, never missed a test, and had three other small children besides. Sure I was tired, but I wouldn't change it for a minute.
Hunny, just do it and get it over with (school I mean). Don't listen to people tell you that you can't finish because its totally possible.

I had my second baby in my first semester of school and my third in my last semester of school. I did not miss one clinical. With my second pregnancy, I had low fluid and had to do NST's 3 times a week. I endeded up being induced after a bad nst, one month early, after my clinical that day..I was back the next week for my clinical. With my third pregnancy, I had the baby over spring break...and back to school the next week. My only restrictions was not to take care of a patient with cytomegalovirus and avoid heavy lifting.
You can do this. Do not let anyone tell you that you can't. I wish you the best of luck! If you need anything...email me
