Has anyone with small children gotten their MSN or done a MEPN program? Furthermore, any single parents? I am applying to a MEPN program in addition to several B.A. programs (with the idea of just getting the MSN right after, as I already have a B.A. in an unrelated field). I know it must be very hard to earn a higher degree with a small child, any tips from those who have been there done that? Any knowledge of financial aid or any programs or grants specifically for single parents? How did you work out childcare? What type of support did you have? I do have very supportive parents that help me out when they can, luckily. I am applying to CNM/NP programs, by the way. Thanks in advance!
