I am 30 and a mom of a 4 year old. I am just finishing my core classes and I will be entering my nursing classes this fall. You are not alone. I won't lie to you, it will be tough, but I believe that you will enjoy it. What I did to help me study, was to tell my daughter what I was learning. For example, for anatomy, I would point to her fingers and say "your finger bones are called phalanges". I really made it into a game. I know that it sounds silly, but you do whatever it takes.

My daughter was 5 when I went back for my RN, school with a young one is tough, mostly if you are a single parent..however I found it easier to include my daughter in on my studies instead of fighting with her and trying to give her attn while focusing on my school. Im telling you, she was the only little girl in grade school who only knew her cheekbones as her zygomatic arch and her forehead as her frontal bone....when kids would hit there "funny bone" she would correct them and say...no, you hit your ULNA nerve....it was the most precious thing......and it got me through school...needless to say though, she is now 10 and has no want to be a nurse:rotfl:
