;) Hi my name is lora, I'm super siked about starting a lpn program in the fall. It's a full time 1 year program, I have 3 kids ages 16, 4 & 16mos. People have been saying theres absoulutely no way I'm going to be able to do this but I am totaly focused and aspire to become a RN. Am I really setting my self up for failure? I'm willing to make the sacrifices that its going to take. I personally think its a good thing for my family and myself. Are there any other nurses who are mothers out there that can lend some advice& truth to this matter.

Tweety, BSN, RN

Specializes in Med-Surg, Trauma, Ortho, Neuro, Cardiac.

When there's a will there's a way. Many mothers have made it through. You'll probably here from some superwoman "I'm a mother of three children the same age, I work 40 hours a week, and take care of my sick grandmother, and bake cookies and teach Sunday school". LOL

It can be done. Tell these people you would appreciate their support because you know that it's going to be difficult, and when the going gets tough (and it will) you want them to support you rather than say "I told you so". Good luck!

Congrats to you on pursuing your dream! I am also a nursing student and my best friend in the program has four children (10, 8, 6 and 4) and is doing beautifully. Do not let anyone get you down, good luck!
