Jan 3, '13IM glad IM not the only one in the same position. I took a huge life changing decision and went part time at my job. Currently as full time I make 78$ too much a month to recieve govt assistance, so going to 4 days a week will benefit me for assistance. Still the scariest thing ever. I know I can do it, for I was given the biggest sign from above that this is what I'm supposed to do. But still scared....
Jan 4, '13Quote from LauraashYou can do this!!! I didn't read through all the other posts but one thing I learned from another instructor was to involve your child if possible when studying, now I know this sounds crazy but my daughter is old enough to quiz me off of lab value note cards while i'm making dinner. We get to spend time together and dinner gets cooked lol. Also don't worry about it if your house is a mess because believe me it was a losing battle and in the beginning I wasn't used to my house looking like a tornado ripped through it but school came first. Good luck and keep positivePlease just need some motivation. I just need to know that people do make it through nursing school as single moms. I have no doubt I will do it. But I can definitely feel the pressure that people think there's no way.
Jan 4, '13You can do this! I'm a single mom of 12 and I made it. I graduated last month w/ my ADN. Best of luck to you.
Jan 5, '13Good luck to you! Although I do not have any children, I'm feeling overwhelmed and like this might not be the correct choice. I'm enrolling in an accelerated program (all four years of a BSN packed into 14 months) and I still have to work through it because I have no other source of income. You just have to put your mind to it and study while you can. Make study plans and make sure that every free minute you have, you are using it wisely. Remember, school is not forever, only temporary! Keep your sanity because that's irreplaceable!
