If I had 3 kids I would never have gone to nursing school because I think it would have been unmanageable for me, but that is me. Several of my classmates had children, worked part time and still passed nursing school. It's all in your motivation and how hard you are willing to work for it. I had no children and worked 8-16 hours per week and barely managed a 3.00 GPA, but again that's just me. If you really want it, it will work out.
