My wife and I are trying to figure out how to finance me going to nursing school. One idea (on top of student loans out the wazoo) is that my wife would work while I would stay home and do an online program while taking care of our kid (1-3 years, depending on when I would start schooling).
I know that it would be dependent on a lot of factors... how needy my child is, how well I can balance child card versus serious scholarship
... but is it possible for someone to stay at home, do an online BSN program, and take care of a young child?

This was me trying to type a response with the 11 moth old in my lap. An online program while home with the kids will be tough if you are really set on the whole sleep thing. Kids not only require but demand pretty much all of your time. Do you have any sort of nursing experience? What about clinicals?
I have a little EMT experience and was in med school for two years, but no nursing experience. One of the programs I'm looking at requires you to be a CNA before starting the program, so I would have some (very brief) experience if I went that route.
