How do you balance it all

  1. I am currently in a two year traditional ADN program and may have to leave due to personal reasons and do an online nursing program to get my degree. I am just curious as to how some of you balance your school work and your family + job? Do you work full time or part time? I already have all my pre-req's so I am basically just having to focus on my nursing courses. Thanks for any information you can give.

    I worked 36 hours a week, went to school full time and have 4 kids. It's not easy but it's worth every sleepless night. I have never accomplished anything that I am more proud of.

    Did you do an online program or a traditional one? How long did it take you to complete your degree if it was online?

    Many people work full time and go through Excelsior. It is still a lot faster than the traditional even if you move slower than average.
