0Dec 9, '12 by Philly_LPN_GirlSince you are not working you have a great advantage . My children's childcare hours are 6:30am - 6:30pm. I go to class Mon-Fri 8:am- 2:30 pm but majority of the time, I am out between 1:30pm and 2pm and when I have clinicals, I go to class M/Th/Fri 8am-2:30pm and Clinicals T/W from 7am-1pm. It is hectic and I hate having to take my babies to school so early in the am BUT, this is a sacrafice that I am willing to make and it will be worth it at the end. Good luck with your decision, you are able to make it work and keep us updated
0Dec 9, '12 by Neese80!, LPNQuote from becalee26My program was Mon thru Thurs 830-230 with clinical days being 730-430. I have three kids 8,5,&2 and it was hectic! I had to quit my full time job and hubby took over all the bills. I only worked every weekend in home health so that work wouldnt interfere with my studies. It was very hard but now that i am finished it was all worth it. Nothing worth having comes easy😄I reallly want to apply to a LPN program but I am worried that it's not going to be possible with having younger children. I am 32 years old and I have a 4 year old and 6 year, the younger one will be in school full time next fall. I have a supportive husband but he leaves the house at 6am and is home at 5pm. He can rearrange his schedule a couple of days whole week. I have no family so would have to be put my kids in before school care. I've been a stay at home for 6 years so the thought to have to put them in before school care at 6:30am every morning is a little overwhelming for me.
I know every program is different but can some of you post what your weekly schedule is?
If anyone have a situation that is similar to mine and you are making it work, please please share with me your story. Nursing has been a dream of mine but I am so scared to pull the trigger.
I am about to start a CNA job so I guess that's a step in the right direction but not somewhere that I want to stay.
(Evening program is not an option for me)
