Hi there. I am currently on the nursing waitlist at a community college. I have been waiting for almost two years now. Last time I spoke with the health department, they said students typically wait 2-3 years before getting in. I'm hoping to get in next year, but I'm not sure-it's possible. My issue is a little complicated, so I'm hoping some of you can advise me on what I should do. Long story short, I will be going through IVF to get pregnant. If I do it now, I should be pregnant around Feb-Mar, and possibly due November. IF I get accepted to the nursing program next year, I would start August 2016. My question, since it is going to be the latter half of my pregnancy, will I be doing clinical in the beginning, or is it classroom based? Since it will be the first few months of classes is it doable versus the end? I have a ton of support from my family, so someone watching him or her will not be an issue, I'm more worried about the missing class and clinical portion. I have had a baby while in school before with no issues, and went back to school two days after delivery. I am very determined and goal oriented. I care about grades, and I work hard to get a high GPA the last couple of years in school. Just thought that may help. Any comments are appreciated. Thank you

At most places you start clinicals in the first semester. If you did give birth in November, there's a good chance you'd end up missing some, and at every school I've ever heard of, you get dropped if you miss too many, regardless of the reason.

A lot of schools give people the option to defer enrollment a years once you're accepted.
