  1. I am working on my pre-reqs for an ADN program. I will begin it next year. I am so excited and I hope that I can do it with 2 children. My youngest is 9 months old. I am taking English 2, Am. History since 1865, Interpersonal Communications and A&P 1. I have A&P tonight! I am nervous! Thanks for listening!

    Hi Larae:

    I too am a newbie but I just love this site. I have found out a lot of info and tips for the last two semesters that I have for my ADN. I also have children, but mine are older: two sons 22 and 15 and my daughter is 10. My oldest is out on his own now. They are basically fairly independent at this age, but I did my LPN course when my youngest son was only 2. I found they went to bed earlier then and I was able to have a lot more study time. At these ages, there is the constant interruptions, knocks on my door. So I have decided that I will do most of my studying at the library or in the car in the student parking lot!... Good luck and enjoy your schooling.

    Welcome. When I started in my program I thought "Two years is such a LONG time". Now I'm saying "Boy, that was fast!! Where did those two years go? and How did all this "stuff" get into my head??
    There was a student in the class that had 4 kids when she started. She gave birth to her 5th during our 3rd semester!!!! She made it through to graduation and passed her boards this summer.

    A quote from 'Waterboy': "YOU CAN DO EEEEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!"
    Good luck and have fun.

    Welcome to the board! I love the board, I don't get to post too often-but read all the time! I also have a 9mo old boy & I know it will be a challenge since I'm also beginning the adn, but we can do it! Best of Luck!
