I have a question for anyone who is or was a student in any of the nursing programs in Las Vegas (ANY- LPN, ADN, BSN, accelerated post bacc BSN...any of the schools).
If you had to work childcare around your schedule of classes and clinicals, how did you do it? Were you able to find a center that had extended hours, or did you hire an in-home person (like a f/t nanny or a part time college student), or did you find a home childcare provider? Did you choose a certain program over another b/c of the schedule?
We are probably moving to Nellis AFB and my husband is going to have an erratic schedule and be away from time to time - there is no way I can rely on him for childcare at any time, including weekends. I have 4 kids - one will be old enough (probably turning 13 by the time I start school) to stay alone after school a few hours and hopefully even get himself on the bus in the AM, two are elem school aged, and one will be preschool/kindergarten aged.
I am getting tired of putting off going back to school b/c of childcare logistics! Any suggestions or personal experiences as to how you pulled it off would be appreciated.
