Yes I too was a stay at home mom for 9 years... I took all my generals, A & P I and II, Organic & Bio, English Comp., Chemistry, and Psy, and Sociology, Math, Humanities. I am going into the program this fall, and just taking Nursing and my P.E.
You don't want to be overloaded, especially if you are the kind of Mom that I am, that is my full-time job, running them to practice, and games. I would recommend it to everyone, to get your generals out of the way, especially if you are the NON-TRADITIONAL STUDENT...HAHAHA Keep a goal in mind, and remember your dreams... I have a really good friend that I am always calling and we are in the program together... you will meet a lot of interesting people and support groups i.e. other Moms that are going back to school to get their degree as well...
I didnot think that we could afford for me to go back, but the Financial Aid Office was a great help to us, they should help you get things rolling for the fall.
Also you are showing your Children that you really want something, and setting a good example for them. My kids and husband are really proud of me and that I am doing this, I know there are days that I am not fun to live with, but remember this soon will pass, and it will all be worth it one day.
