    How is NS with having little kids?

    It can be done. I have four ages 16,15 (ugghh hormones) 9 and 5 (before care issues). I would say that no will become your favorite word and it has to. You will need your families support because the need to study is not optional. No one except someone that has gone through the program the dedication and perseverance that it takes. You will learn to prioritize, and delegate. I also kind of work 3 prn jobs after the 1st semester (student nurse, medical assistant (call center) and SI instructor. However in this last semester I do the bare minimum because of the almost daily assignments. You can do it, don't give up and good luck!!!!

    Nurse Extern?? What's that about?

    Here in MD the job is the same as a Nurse Tech however it has the advantage of a job offer upon graduation. Even before sitting for the boards (offer not job) with out trying to figure out the ok now I need a job part. So its a good option.

    Should I continue with school?

    its better to finish now. I have 4 kids and its not always easy to find ways around the schedule. But it can be done. Do it know while you can just hold your breathe for the next few semesters and it will be over with soon enough.

    A Time to Heal

    This was very beautifully written. As a student nurse I feel stressed daily.

    What are you getting paid as a nurse student?

    I am a nursing student and a mother of four. I work PRN as a NT(Nursing Tech). That way you can add as many schedules as you can handle:no:. Just remember that the main objective is to pass nursing school so don't out schedule yourself. I only work "full time" during breaks and summer. Good luck either way but if it is to be it will be just fine.

    Grades or a Job - Decisions

    It is true that your grades will suffer but if you believe you can hold it together you will. The only doubt that you have to get over is yours. You will be beyond exhausted to put in the additional study time that you are use to having know that will vaporize with the mommy can you and mommy look at this, but the only thing that can honestly stop you is you. So the question is what can you do? Good luck with what ever you choose. I am a married mother of 4(so 5) and work 3 prn jobs. But I don't work more than 20-22 hrs a week. I am in my 2nd half of 2nd semester of an ADN program.

    Volunteer RN opportunities

    Volunteer No.... It would most likely be in your best interest if you have passed the NCLEX to find some type of full time employment to learn (by proctor) and gain skills. If you can work nights if you want a slower pace to learn at. Or start in a nursing home. You have to have a preceptor for about 12 weeks no matter where you work unless you get into some type of home health care
