Hello Everyone! I am 26 year old mother of two kids ages 6 and 2. I stay at home full time with the kids(the 6 yr old is going into 1st grade) I have not taken any college classes at all and it has been 6 years since highschool...My LPN school does not require any pre-reqs at all..I did have to take the TEAS test and interview! My question is that if I have never taken a college class befor will I be able to take in the info? I am worried that it might be too hard since I havnt had any prior college experience

Just wanted to say good luck to all of you mommies going back to school.
You can do it!
I'm 35 and have been a stay at home mom for over 10 yrs now. My kids are almost 9 and 11. I'm just now finally going back to start my nursing dream (although I have had tons of college here and there over the years). Because of my dedication to the kids, I just kept putting off going for my RN. I wish I had considered LPN programs sooner cause I probably would have done it years ago. I'm taking a CNA class this fall and hope to start a part time LPN program in July 2012.
I'm scared and excited to be re-entering the workforce!
My mom went back to school (with no previous college) for her LPN at the age of 33. My sister and I were 8 and 12 at the time. My mom also ended up getting pregnant while she was in nursing school
and still made it through. I remember being so proud of her. Her income as a nurse really enhanced our quality of life and I so appreciate the hard work she did for us. Your kids will be so proud of you too!
