Kids come first. If you have problems with child care that needs to be #1 priority. So if your classes are daylight, when are you going to work, in the evening? & When will you see the children? & Study?
I'm not trying to be negative, I'm just aware of how difficult it can be. Take it SLOW. I would not try to take a a full time class schedule, work and still do all the mom stuff. Are you kids in pre school, or sports, dance, play dates etc.? All that mom stuff is time consuming. All that nursing stuff is time consuming too. See if you can do one class at a time.

I called the nursing program admissions office today at our local cc to get the admissions requirements for nursing school. They will call me back with the information. I really want to know what to expect. I'm just starting school in January after being out for 11 years and it's difficult, but I really want this.
I'm reading up on nursing now and my MIL was a LPN for many, many years before her health made her give it up. She loved it!!!
Just take it one class and one problem at a time and you'll get there.
