Hi I'm Jim.. I'm in my first semester of nursing and I have a problem. So far I've kept my head above water but I feel myself sinking fast. I'm married with three kids. One of our kids has autism and that is an ordeal in itself. But here's what's really bothering me. All the time I've been in school I've worked full time. My grades have often suffered for it and I can accept that now that I'm in the nursing program. The semester before I got accepted I asked my wife if she would reduce her class load and get a job so that I could reduce my work hours and possibly even quit. Like I said before my head is above water now, but it won't be for long. I work 36 hours over the weekend, prime study and paper time. Whenever I bring it up that I don't have enough time to get my stuff done she tells me that I'm trying to hold her back. What the heck am I supposed to do?
