Any Idaho Nurses on here still?

  1. Hey everyone!
    I was wondering if there are still any of you Idaho nurses on AllNurses I would love to get some insight on nursing and the programs in our area! I am not even a pre-nursing student yet but I plan on attending CWI in the Spring of 2014. I am in the Boise area and I am pretty sure hospitals prefer a BSN education, however I plan on getting my ASN first and then bridging when my hubby and I can afford it. I will most likely be limited to LTC with my education but at least I will be in the health care world I will have to wait until the following Spring (2015) to apply to the nursing program for the Fall. I am going to take the 3 required pre reqs and then as many of the other non nursing classes to hopefully increase my chances of getting in. I was considering getting my CNA while doing the pre reqs to gain some experience.... Well I would really love to hear what any of you think! Is there any one out there whom is just starting there journey as well? What path did you take? How do you like nursing in Idaho? Any thing lol I seem to be an information junkie right now lol

    Hi I'm not in Idaho, but I seen your post about having 3 kids, I have 2 my son is 5 my daughter is almost 4, both in Pre-k my husband is 11 years older than me I'm 25. We want one more baby but he said he can't wait 5 more years, so it's now or never, in march I will start taking some Pre-req all Pre and co req, so probably will take around 2 1/2 years which I don't care I'm in no hurry to work , I can't want to accomplish my goal of getting in nursing school and passing and become a rn! But I want another kid whIch will be more hard when I get in nursing school, Pre-req Classes isnt the problem, because I can go when my husband isn't busy. I have family that can help. But for nursing school my older two will be in school all day and if I were to have a baby and be due early next year around march-June 2013, that baby prob would be only around 3, so I need to make a decision , I'm not sure what to do. I want both, how do you manage it all. It's hard being a mom
