First of all, CONGRATULATIONS on getting into the program! To answer your question, it all depends on you and the amount of stress that you are willing to put up with. We have a lot of people in our class that are from the Raleigh/Cary/Apex area. I know that several of the girls rented an apartment together and they drive home every weekend. (They don't have any children.) I also know of several that drive back and forth to class every day. (Two of them have small children.)
I just glanced at my Fall 2008 calendar. We had class all day every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. We also had either 2 Mondays or 2 Fridays in late October, (the class was split in 1/2), that we were "exposed" to nursing practice in a nursing home. We also had 2 days the week of Thanksgiving break that we were "exposed" to nursing practice in a hospital setting. Assuming that your schedule will be the exact same as mine, you should be able get an apartment and just stay three days a week. (Provided that you can get loads of quality study time on the weekends.)
For the Spring 2009 semester, we have clinicals every Monday and Tuesday. We have exams every week or every other week on Wednesdays and we have class all day Thursday. We've also had 2-3 activities scheduled on Fridays.
The rumors that i've heard so far is that for the 1st Summer Session we are in clinicals all day every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and we have class all day Friday. For the 2nd Summer Session for our clinical capstone, we have to work with a preceptor for 36 hours a week for 5 weeks. You have to work whatever your preceptor does so if they work straight nights or weekends, you will too.
Again, i think that only you can answer your question. I think that if your husband could find a job and move to Greenville that this would be the easiest on your marriage and you would get to see your two year old every night. Unfortunately, with the economy in the tank & your husband being able to find a descent job plus being able to sell your home for a decent price, it might be easier financially to just get an apartment with a room-mate. Unfortunately, you have a LOT of studying that you will have to do each week. The dilemma for you will be study, spend time with the husband, or spend time with your two year old. Regrettably, for you to do well in this program, studying will have to come first.
Whatever you decide to do, if you need assistance with finding an apartment or if you and the husband need a tour of Greenville (house hunting), give me a call and i will help in whatever way that i can.
