    You just have to find that shift that works well for you. I'm a Mom to 4 kids (12, 11, 11, 7), work full time nights, full time RN-BSN, and an occasional part-time job here and there to pick up the slack. Hubby is without a job at the moment, so being a stay at home Mom won't work. We both wish I were able to stay home and I know he would rather it be that way, but its just not working out that way.

    Would I do any of it over again, no. I'd do it the say way again. Perhaps I would have gotten the BSN much sooner.
