My wife and went through our BSN program together. We also had all of our clinical placements together, with the expcetion of one (when we had our baby we needed to be on opposite schedules so one of us could stay home with the baby). This worked really well for us. We could study together, we were on the same schedule, we carpooled, and kept eachother on track. It wasn't a problem for us, our peers, or the faculty. In fact, we were pregnant with our first baby about halfway through our program. We had our daugther about three months before we graduated. We brought the baby to class with us during our final semester - no problems. Nursing school was definitely a family affair for us!

I know this kind of arrangement isn't for everyone, but it worked well for us. Best of luck to you.

My group has 2 sisters together. They've had some classes together, and have gotten lucky and had clinicals together both semesters. They're in their 40s now and have their own families and stuff so they're both really grateful to have this time to spend together. Plus, they always have a study group with another person they trust :) They're wonderful, and I enjoy being in classes with them.

That should not be a problem. In my class we started with a mother and daughter duo (the daughter has since quit) a group of sisters (three total, one family) and a boyfriend/girlfriend. We have been asigned our first clinicals and since they encourage car pooling these people were able to get the same assignment.

At the school I attended we had 3 sets of sisters in class together. My sister and I and another set all graduated together in May. We studied together, sat next to each other in class, and was even put in the same clinical group with one another.

Not to mention the cost of books is cut in half! You both only need one set!

Not quite the same, but my daughter and I graduated together, she with a Bachelor's and me with my master's. Obviously not in the same classes (mine was all online), but those pictures of both of us in cap and gown are great!

It's funny you mentioned that because we have already started sharing books! Next quarter she is getting my sociology book and I am getting her Micro book. lol. The savings is definitely nice. It would be nice to be able to carpool as well, if we are in the same clinicals.

Kudos to you and your daughter:D

I've taken a few classes with my sister. The funny thing is, we went to class together (we commuted) and always sat next to each other. And there were several occasions where we told other classmates we were related and they finally realized we looked kind of the same. It never really presented a problem, it was good to have a study partner in the comfort of my own home. (Plus, we'd remind each other of upcoming deadlines and so forth, so more of an advantage in my experience)

My sister and I took all of our prerequisites together, we both got into our school's Nursing program for the fall and we got the same class schedule, we don't choose our schedule the school makes it. We are so excited to start the program together! I find that having class together benefits us greatly! Studying is so much easier and you have someone to keep you on track.
