27yo single mom just graduated!!!!!

  1. just want to give inspiration here.
    I'm 27 and a single mom to a three year old boy. I just graduated with my ADN.
    You can do it. I took my pre-reqs with my nursing classes.
    I can remember staying up ALL NIGHT rehearsing a speech for my speech class, Hunter on my lap with an ear infection screaming at the top of his lungs. I took him to class, and had a friend watch him outside while I gave my speech on "home birth". ugggggg
    yes, you can do it!!!
    older students,and single moms!!!
    If you can visualize it, you can do it, never give up never!!!!

    My mom got a BS in Biology by taking my then newborn brother to class with her most of the time!

    She graduated magna cum laude!

    I went back to college when my 3 year old was ... er... 3, I got mostly A's. I was young, probably 30, and today I have NO idea how I did it!

    CONGRATULATIONS!!
