Help! I am currently in an accelerated RN program and my husband and I are trying to think about when to have kids.  Is it crazy to try to have a child shortly after starting a new nurse job? From what we've talked about it would put us trying to have a child about 5 months after I graduate and I'm wanting to hear if that's possible.

Lots of people do it. There isn't a crystal ball, so just live your life really. If you have a healthy pregnancy in which you feel good, getting pregnant five months after you start your new job will have you delivering your baby about a year in and doing your job through that time won't be a big issue except for early pregnancy fatigue and late pregnancy heaviness and fatigue. If you have one of the infinite number of pregnancy complications, both major or mild, it will be less pleasant, ranging from not that big of a deal all the way to put on bed rest and unable to work. These truths will be there regardless of when you get pregnant.
