1. Hi,
    I am a CNA working toward my Nursing degree. I'm 29, have two children and am pregnant with my third and last. So I have a pretty long road of school and work and kids ahead of me. But I am looking forward to it. I start in January and have some refreshers before I actually get to the nursing classes, oh well. I would like to specialize in the forensic field.

    Wow...three kids and going to nursing school. You've got guts!!!

    Welcome to allnurses. I think its great that you are going into this field...you must already enjoy it since you're a CNA. Are you starting an LPN, RN, or BSN program in Jan??

    I'm finishing up my Associates in two weeks and it will be a long road for you, but it is so very worth it. Just to give you a kick of confidence, a classmate of mine worked fulltime as a sales rep, had 3 children under the age of 3 (one born during nursing school), and passed all of his classes with great grades and did awesome in clinicals...WHEW!!

    Good luck with everything...and again welcome!

    I am starting at the very bottom, but am pursuing my RN degree. I would like to take that farther and specialize in the forensic field. But just to get through the first phase I am looking at 3 1/2 years before I finish my RN degree. I have no prereqs done yet. I will have to say my boyfriend is very supportive and will help with the kids. It also helps that my son is 9 and my daughter will be 11 in April.
