I am starting w/ pre reqs this fall and next fall will have to decide either to put my then 4 yr old son in a childcare program during the week while I am at school, or get my LPN nights and weekends then take an RN bridge.
It seems more logical school-wise to put my ds in childcare and finish my ADN in 3 semesters other than to prolong things, but I feel guilty about putting my kid in daycare.
I have been a stay at home for 5 years and have another son who will be starting kindergarten next fall. I think we will actually have more family time if my youngest son is in daycare and I attend day classes- because I wont be gone nights and weekends. BUT I *feel* like I am being selfish or something? I am 29 yrs old and so excited about nursing school and so ready to jump in...just trying to find the best way to do things and I dont want to wait 3 more yrs until my youngest is in kindergarten (he missed the age cutoff).
Just looking for words of wisdom out there and I'd like to hear how other moms handle this.
Thanks so much,
