I am almost done with the cnep program. I have four boys (15, 13, 6, 4) and have worked pretty much full-time since I started the program 2 yrs ago. I did go PRN at work, but work full-time hours. Basically I need the $$, but I like the flexibility to turn down hours if school is getting too crazy! I am going full-time at Frontier and when I first started my husband was deployed. I work dayshift and nightshift, whatever shifts I can pick up at work. The program is not easy by any means, but it is doable. You will have to give up things, learn to say no to people. I no longer volunteer in kids church, my house isn't always clean, my kids have learned to eat pb&J and ramen noodles. I have a very supportive husband who is not afraid of rolling up his sleeves and doing dishes, laundry, scrubbing toliets....whatever needs to be done. And thankfully my kids make good grades without needing me to hover and check their homework. Basically, I'm just trying to say that it is a tough program, but it is doable. I don't consider myself a genius, I just study hard and keep on going no matter how bad it gets. I have one term left, and I will say it has went by fast! Good luck to you!
