I also wanted to ask... are there any other single parents who are applying to the program? Perhaps this was already discussed earlier in the thread and I missed it. Any tips on paying for childcare and bills during school without working? I feel like I might have to live off of student loans which kills me to think about.

You will definitely have to live off student loans and rely on friends/family to help you watch the kids and/or get them to/from childcare on days where the hours are long (finishing at the hospital at 7:30 pm, having to arrive places by 6:30 A.M. depending on the hours of your childcare site)

It's an MSN and not NP so be sure that's what you want! Huge difference in pay and autonomy.

I have 4 kids and will continue to work part time throughout nursing school. My older 3 are in school and already attend before and after school care and the baby is already in daycare. Thankfully I do have an active helpful partner now so he will be able to help a lot with transport and the bulk of the bills. Definitely much different than when I was doing my BA on my own with 3 kids. All of my kids have gone to Phoenix Day which is an amazing daycare near ASU Downtown. ASU actually helped with childcare assistance and works closely with that center. They often have scholarships for childcare so it is worth looking into or putting your kid on a waitlist. With the scholarship it is only $40 a week for full time care.

Hi everyone, I'm just finding out about this program and plan to apply next year, so Spring 2020. I have a question for anyone who has completed this program (or is in it currently) with children. If you have a good support system at home, how doable is this program with multiple children? I have 3 kids 4 and under right now so they would be 5, 3.5 and 1.5 for this program. Thanks!

Hey everyone, I'm also constantly checking my email over here! I have a question for those already in the program (if you see this), if I will be taking a loan out for the program how does the whole process work after acceptance into the program?
