Thank you so much for your advice. I was going to ask the same question as wanttobnurse also. I'm also a mom of 1, married and pursuing a nursing degree but starting out with LPN clinicals. I start this month! I currently work 40 hours and will be lowering the number of hours so I can focus on my studies. I guess the scary part is not knowing what its like, what to expect. Believe me, I'm only expecting the worst. But I am eagar and excited as well.
To wanttobnurse, I'd say find a balance. I have bills to pay, a family to take care of as well, but Christine2009 is right. If you want it bad enough, it can work. I'm sure you will find a way to make it work. Good luck to you both! :)
