Hi, this is my first post. I have looked at other posts, but they all seem to be very old... 2009 or earlier. Anyway, here is my situation. I was accepted into the Barnes Jewish Nursing program in St Louis. I was originally accepted into the accelerated program, but decided that wasn't going to work with a newborn at all. Anyway, I am due June 21st and classes would start Sept 15. So... I would be a new mom and starting nursing school too. I know this is my decision and I want to do what is best for my child. I am 33 and really don't want to put off school any longer. I already have a teaching degree, but can not find a job. My husband was in the military and so we traveled a lot... We will be moving again within the next 3-5 years. Teachers don't get hired very easily when you move around a lot.
Ok, so I guess what I'm looking for is some advice. Has anyone gone to nursing school with a newborn at home or am I completely nuts for even considering this?
