Congrats on your decision! I remember my moment when I decided to become a nurse...My first born was about two and a half. I stayed home with him everyday. I always knew I would go to college, I just did not know what I wanted to do. I got so tired of being home ALL DAY, EVERYDAY!!! I knew I had more to offer the world, my son, and myself. I enrolled at Southeastern in Jan. 2004 as a nursing major. Two months later, I got pregnant with my daughter. I stayed in school, though. I will finish my pre-req's in May. I will start nursing school in August. You can do it! One a more serious note, please try to get help for your son....my older brother used to hit on my siblings and me. Not an easy upbringing.
