    I'm a single mom also (4 mth boy) and I'm starting my pre reqs in the fall. Just wanted to know if it was hard for you to go to school. I'm really looking forward to starting school but I'm a little worried about going to school full-time and working part-time. I know it's going to be hard, I guess I would just like to hear someone eles' experience.

    Thank you:spin:

    hello and welcome! you are so blessed to have a beautiful baby. i am going into my 2nd semester of an ADN program and i am a single parent. i think that the pre-reqs were better as far as scheduling, because i got to choose what class times to attend. that way i could schedule it around my son and a part-time job. as far as nursing school goes i couldn't pick the times (except for night classes) so i had to have people there that could take care of my son. and i dont work now, just get financial aide. but as far as i can see you still have some time with your pre-reqs to work and let your baby get a lil older. just make sure that when you enter nursing school that you have some kind of support system to help with your child if it comes up, and you should do great. a lot of people goes thru this process having children, so you are not alone. God bless!

    Hello, anyone else notice the first page is from 2002. I am a nursing student, mother of four. I graduate in December. Very excited, starting to get scared though, I now feel that I don't have enough knowledge or experience to be a "real nurse". Cold feet I guess.
