I just started nursing school this month. I already have a BA, so I'll be done in March of '15. I attend Chamberlain College and am in the BSN program. I got engaged over winter break. We're looking to get married April of next year, during my spring break. I will basically be in nothing but clinicals and nursing classes starting in Jan of next year. I start clinicals this May. My mother and pastor are concerned that I'm going to get in over my head by trying to plan a wedding and do nursing school. Do you think it's doable? Have any of you gotten married while. In nursing school? I know it will be intense, but I think I should be ok. My fiancé will be doing most of the planning and work. Also, we're keeping it small (around 50 people), and we're thinking of something small and close for the reception. Any thoughts or comments? Any chamberlain people who can comment on how much work the clinicals are? I should add that I'm a male nursing student, so my fiancé, being the bride to be, is more than happy to do the bulk of the planning.

Sorry, I must say do not attend chamberlin! It is crazy expensive. I would apply to a com college, regardless of your previous bs degree. You will only pay 3k to 4.5k a year at a com college. Bsn rns and asn rns only make a $1 diff in hourly pay. So there is virtually no diff in whether or not you have a bsn degree. All that will matter is that your an rn.
I think only you can know if getting married right now. And know mother knows best.
And if you do decide to marry now, I hope you plan on eloping at city hall. You are not going to have time to plan for a wedding and if you spend all your $ at chamberlin you will not have $ to have the wedding you want. Nursing school is hell it's not fun and you will be stressed. I would wait to get married.
