i received my acceptance letter today. i have a seat for the fall class beginning in august. i am not sure what to do though. i was not expecting to get in until january (they told me they would do a review in october, i guess they did one earlier). i am excited, nervous, scared etc. you name it, i feel it. i still need to take the two a&p classes, psychology (human growth & development) and microbiology. if i accept the seat into this class, i will not be able to take a full course load as i have two small children (ages 4 and 1 1/2) at home.
should i take the first nursing course as well as the psychology and the first a&p and then continue on in january? i would have to find someone to take my daughter to preschool on mondays as i would be in class all day monday. should i forgo my seat until january as i planned to? i would have to quit my job sooner than i thought also. i also have to still apply for financial aid.
what to do? anyone taking a full course load with small children at home? how to handle it?
thanks in advance for reading and any input would be appreciated.
debi, congratulations on getting accepted!
i wished i had the "right" answer for you, but i don't. all i can say, it can be done. i quit my job, was single, 3 chilren (at that time ages 10, 3, 1) when i went to lpn school.
when i start the rn program this fall, i am once again single, will work weekends and will have to take a full load because of a scholarship. although i don't have small children now, two of my three are teenagers and a young adult, but my teenagers need me too.
only you know what is and will be best for you. those questions you have, will you still be faced with the same questions in jan?
all the best to you, debi.
