LSN is a very aggressive nursing program. It is an excellent program and you will learn what you need to learn with a lot of hard work and no life for yourself. You have to be determine and motivated with no outside distraction. It is very fast pace and challenging. You will be going to school 5 days a week in the beginning. If you prefer a slower pace program don't look at LSN!!!!
In short, yes, it is possible to complete the program with children. You should check out some of the other Lutheran threads for a lot of information about the school, etc.
I just graduated from the program in November, and I'm willing to answer any specific questions you might have.
Make no mistake though, this program is anything but easy. Prepare to put yourself into it, as it is accelerated, and again, difficult.
I am a single mom to 2 kids (6yr & 7mths). I am in 2 quarter of nursing school. I have worked full time up till Feb 1. At which time I will start 32 hrs a week. Its not easy, but IM trying my best and know I won't be given more than I can handle. In my own opinion, one must do what they must do to survive. I have no one I can move inn with. I know I can't survive with 2 kids on 12.45$ an hour. I know in my brain, and most days in my heart, that 2 yrs of sacrifice to finish my ADN is worth it for myself and my babies. I have to work. I don't have the option not to. But BC I have my kids, and they rely on me, my motivation to multi task, work, school, cook, clean, etc. most definitely helps me push forward. I think everyone has to find that one thing that lights fire under their butt, and hold onto it with all your might.
