You don't mention your age and that might be something to consider. My kids are 17, 12 and 5 and they have the best relationships. The little one adores his big brothers, looks up to them and the oldest 2 are very protective of the little one, especially the 17 y/o. I started in the medical field (CNA program, Surgical Technology program, now completing a BSN) when the oldest was 14 and I still have 2 more years to go. I'm 41 and always wanted another baby (really wanted that girl) but now I'm not sure it will happen. If you have over a year to even apply to a program and you're not over 35 do it now! if you are younger, I would wait to be done with school. Good luck!
