So I am 29, I guess it was two years ago I really made up mind to go back to school for nursing. I did my cna over the summer, in fact at first everything was happening fast. I was home schooled so I had to start with a ged. I aced the test on my first try. my instructor was very encouraging. She said I shouldn't just be nurse I should specialize. All was going well. Then i went through a separation, and I have three young children. It has been two years now and I am just on my second semester. I had to do developmental math and science. I aced the science, but have been struggling with the Algebra. meanwhile I have been working as a cna. Any one who has been one knows how hard a job it is.
Any other single mom nursing students on here? Do you ever feel like giving up or that youll never get into school? I know 30 isn't that old but its a far cry from 18.
I am putting in my application for the lpn program tomorrow. I want to bridge to rn but I Think this may be a good start for me.
