    I too dropped out of my RN nursing courses this semester. it was a hard decision to make, but the best one for me and my family right now. I just couldn't do it right now. My grades were low and I just was worn to a frazzle. Ease up on yourself and take it easy. Tackle it again when you feel you can do it and give it your all. That's how I am going about it. It's still my dream,and always will be, but right now, I am needed more right where I am.
    Good Luck to you both...

    Hey Deb,

    I am sure that you did the best that you could have and gave everything and more. I to have those thoughts right now and my exams are in two weeks and I am not feeling the best about what the outcomes are going to be. But not to mind I wish all the best in future good luck and enjoy your children.

    Sometimes it's just not the right time and place for your particular circumstances. Hang in there, take a class every now and then, I highly recommend those pesky 101 liberal arts things, but only one at a time, just to keep your mind working. Maybe w/small kids, you could take some child develop?ment.

    When you're ready to tackle nursing, it will still be here!

    Hi StudentDeb,

    I too went through that when my children were much smaller. They are now 9, 8, and 6 and I am just now going back to finish. I have 2 more classes coming up in Spring before I can apply to the program. I think it was a great decision for me...and believe me the time flies! Enjoy your children.....they grow fast....and mine are my biggest supporters now because they realize I waited so I could be with them. My husband is a great help too, now that the kid's are older and easier to! I can truly sympathize with how difficult a decision it was.....hang in there!

    Blessings, Terri~
