I can't answer the other questions, but, i went through nursing school
, with one child, and one on the way, AND i also worked part-time (cuz i had to).
but, you WILL need help, support and help with the kids, from your husband, your best pals, your relatives, and others who might be able to occasionally pick up children from school when you can't, or who can stand in for you on mornings you have already left the home, or during exam weeks/when you need to study for long periods of time, etc etc.
It'd be one less stressor on you, if you know your kids are being attended to, fed good food, etc, while you focus on studying, etc, from time to time.
Your family should agree to help you get through this, because, you will need extra hands, on a regular basis, to raise children while attending school.
it can be done.
won't be the easiest thing you ever do, but, it can be done!! And you will have to get very efficient at organizing your time and your home life, too, but, it gets a bit easier to figure out how to do that, imo, the more practice you get at it.
I went to an entirely different school than yours, and it was a long time ago, but some of our 'clinicals' (days you work in hospitals or clinics) were sometimes far enough away, that i would have to leave my home at 5am or 6am to ensure i was at that week's clinic on time. This was not every day, not at all,
but, occasionally, my school did require me to drive to places up to 45 minutes away from my home, for that particular area of study.
but, that was NOT commonly done, only occasionally we'd all have to travel a bit to get a certain kind of clinic.
What time i got home, varied frm one day to another, and from one semster to antoher, but your shcool guidance counselor could probably give you a better idea of your school's details. It will probably vary from one semester to another, your schedule.
humorous tip: NEVER ever ever wash ALL your uniforms that your school requires all in one load. Always leave one set out. always. I'm remembering a night i sat up most of night, scrubbing and scrubbing my pure-white uniforms req'd back then,
after i'd washed them ALL with a 4-color inkpen in one pocket.....lol!! To this day, 30 years later, i've never ever washed ALL my uniforms all in one load, ever ever again!! ha ha!!
GOOD LUCK, AND WELCOME!!
