Hi, I'm currently an LVN the works 40 hours per pay period or sometimes more than to compensate my day to day living. I worked 2 jobs before but since last January i stopped my other job. I decided to go back to college and finish what I've started, to become an RN. I don't want to be a complainer but it seems to me that I am unconsciously a complainer, but it's so hard to start. I am  the primary source or what you can call head of my household which are composed by my mother, sister and my 2 adorable nephews who has their own disabilities (physical and mental disability). I am here to ask some suggestions or support for those who have one or yet similar to what I've been going through. I am tied with so much responsibility that in my culture is just a norm for us. If  someone might as,  my cultural and beliefs are of filipino culture. Which I normally think of my family than myself. I guess, everyone here would pretty much do the same. I am here for advice and suggestions on how did you guys do it? Or if you were in my position, how would you do it? I would like to hear from your success stories as well.

I have been an instructor in a lpn to rn program. I have had many success stories. Most of my students worked full time and were mothers . You can do it. It helps if your work can accommodate your schooling. I also found the students were a tremendous support to each other. Just take one course at a time and ask your mother and sister to help you. it can be done.

I worked full time while completing an LPN to RN program. It's absolutely possible and one of the best decisions I ever made. Completely worth the. hard work. Good luck!
