Hello all,

I just thought I would share some positive news! After giving birth to my daughter during fundamentals, I am now two semesters away from graduating! So many people discouraged me and told me that I couldn't possibly finish school with a little one but I am doing it! No matter what obstacle you're facing just keep thinking, "i can do this." HARD WORK and DETERMINATION can get you through nursing school. I wish everyone luck as they are completing their finals! I hope everyone has a great Christmas break.

Congrats on the new baby and way to go! Thanks for the encouragement! It is determined students like you that give the rest of us hope:yes:

Thank you! She is 9 months old now! Time is going by so fast! 7.5 months till graduation!! You will make it through! Study..Study..Study :)

This was so inspiring! I know a lot of people consider having children a sort of obstacle for your career, but I don't see why that's believed. Wishing you the best of luck!

This is very encouraging! I am taking pre reqs still right now and applying go a accelerated BSN program here in NC. I have two little ones currently 20 Months and 5 years old. I still have about a year before I possibly start nursing school and I have heard so many horror stories about school and working as a nurse. But I have decided to make my own experience of both because this has been my dream for so long! Thank you so much for these encouraging words. They mean so much!!

Thank you so much for this post, we are in the same boat :) I went through 1st semester preggers and 2nd semester with an infant... it isn't impossible! Don't let others tell you what you can't do :)

It is tough. We have a toddler and a 4 month old in the house. It made for an interesting semester. I had to settle for my first B in the program. Oh well, nobody cares but me.

Regarding the title, are you sure? There are some people in my class that I have no idea how they are passing and I wouldn't let them care for a goldfish.

I'm glad this post could be inspiration to you all! Nursing school is TOUGH! I've never had to think so differently in my life. Once I started thinking more positively, I actually did better on exams and with my skills. I really think that half the battle is having confidence in yourself.

haha now I feel bad! I've killed plenty of goldfish :(

That makes me feel less confident when people say your way of thinking has to completely change. I did very well in my undergrad as well as making As in all my pre reqs so far. If I somehow have to change my way of studying and figuring stuff out that freaks me out!!😁😁😁

Congrats on the baby and your success! I had my first child while in nursing school; she was born the first day of spring break, I took a week off of classes on top of that, and then back at it. I don't remember all the classes I had at the time, just that one of them was patho; I think I had med-surg clinicals and a community teaching project which I was able to complete early in the semester while still (very) pregnant. When I she was born, I read her my patho notes instead of "Goodnight Moon." :roflmao: So anyway, I can definitely appreciate how much work you put in!!

Think of it this way--most of us DO make it through nursing school. :) The thing is, it's not a bunch of rote memorization. Well stuff like patho and pharm are more heavy on the memory stuff, but nursing classes are taking what you know, and apply the *most* correct thing.

God, this is such a welcome post on this site. I am absolutely disgusted by the amount of bitterness and negativity that is spewed out here. I congratulate you on your success!

All the nah sayers are self fulfilling prophecy's that need to hang it up.

Way to go!

Me too!!! I feel like there are so many people complaining and not enough positivity!
