i am taking online pre-reqs now. i plan to begin nursing school in January 2011. I have a friend who's a nurse and she said that it is impossible to work and go to school. i know you have a child, but it is going to be extremely hard to care for your child, work, and study. my girlfriend also told me that nursing school is not like anything you have ever experienced before. i am excited about beginning an ABSN program in the spring, but I have bills, too. Quitting my full-time job to go to school full time is going to be a struggle, since I haven't had to go to school full-time since undergrad. I know that if you have determination, everything is possible:)! Good luck to you!
