Oh I didnt realize you have kids! The program is awesome but hard.....everyone in my class who has a family and/or works full time just has it 10 times harder. The evening program is 4 nites a week plus every other sat & sun 8am-2pm. You literally have no life. I have 9 weeks to go and the countdown is on! I am planning on furthering my education but I dont want to wait 3 years to get accepted to a program.....even the lpn-rn has waitlists I think. But I have no pre reqs done so i might have to wait that long. I am just taking it one day at a time for now - finish 3rd term, graduate, pass NCLEX, get a job and THEN figure out the rest.Any other programs for you - what about northern essex? Good luck in whatever you decide!!!
