I have a question about going to nursing school
and having kids. Today I just got a sudden panic attack when I realized that in just less then 2 months, I'll be in nursing school. Well, I had to miss a class (on Monday) b/c my son had pink eye and the school and after school care, had to send him home. (I totally understand).
Then today, my littlest one was at daycare and they said he coughed so hard he threw up. He's not sick, that's obvious by the way he's tormenting the living room :chuckle so I had to cancel an appt.
I know most nursing schools
have VERY strict attendance policies. Up to this point, I have only missed one class. Which I find incredibly lucky. I'm going to call and find out exactly what our policy is. But for arguments sake, let's just say one of my kids gets the flu or strep throat and can't go to school for 2 or 3 days? I get booted from the program for being home with my kiddo???
I will say that my husband is extremely supportive, but like most jobs, he can't miss work either. So we're kinda stuck, know what I mean?
I'm just realizing I need an alternate plan to daycare and after school care. What do you all do?
Do you literally come out and ask someone to watch your sick kid on an "on call" type basis? I know if someone asked me to do it, I'd tell them no way! :chuckle Sorry for the long post, I'm just concerned and worried b/c I am literally following a dream and don't want to potentially get booted for being a mom of sick kid.
