Hi, I need to know if any body in the forum had gone to nursing school at Baker. I am interested in going to nursing school. Also, do you know of any kind of grant or scholarship to help going to school? I am 29 mom of 2 and ready to learn and be successful.
I graduated from Stormont-Vail School of Nursing in Topeka, Kansas years ago. It is now Baker University School of Nursing. Baker University's main campus is in Baldwin, Kansas. You would be taking your classes in Topeka. Baker is a very good school of nursing. I am a school nurse and I have Baker student nurses spend time with me for a day to see what school nursing is all about. The students are wonderful and enthusiastic to learn. Yes, there are mothers with children going to nursing school. I know that Stormont-Vail Nursing School Alumni Association offers scholarships to students. I had received years ago a scholarship from The March Of Dimes for nursing school. If you call up Baker School of Nursing, they can put you in touch with someone who has knowledge of all the scholarships and grants that are just waiting for some one like you. You can go to school and still be a mom. It will take some flexability on your part as well as keeping an organized schedule. I started nursing school when my son was 5 months old. I was fortunate to have family close by to help watch my children. If you do not have family here to help care for your children while you are in school, mention this to the person you talk to at the school of nursing. They shoulds be able to give you suggestions on where to find information on childcare. ( You did not mention how old your children are and I just assumed they were not in school yet.)
