I can empathize with your situation. We just recently moved from Indiana to Florida and I plan to go to nursing school
. However, while making arrangements to return, I just found out I'm pregnant again (with my third child YIKES).
Juggling work and a full time nursing program is difficult. Have you looked into finding a non-licensed type job at a local medical facility? They often have 12 hours shifts which would allow you to work on the weekends. If your mom really wants you to save some money, maybe she could help watch your child while you work (she is grandma after all :wink2
Since I am pregnant now, I am going to stay at my job until the baby is born in March. The program I want to attend doesn't begin until March 2008 and is in the evenings Monday through Thursday. This will allow me to be home during the day with my children and work 12 hours shifts Friday, Saturday and Sunday. While we still have lots of planning to do, this is a tentative plan we have set.
I hope this information helps you out. Just hang in there. You will get this figured out. Remember, a mother can do unimaginable things to provide for her child AND do something to better her life/career. :angel2:
