Welcome! I'm currently taking my ADN pre-reqs part-time and working full-time as a CNA.
|Do you mind sharing what hours you work? I'll be taking my CNA course in June and I'm also taking my pre-reqs for the nursing program. I really hope to get a 3p-11p shift working after I get my CNA cert. Also, do you work LTC or hospital?|
|I chose to pursue my dream of being a nurse when my husband hurt his back and was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in his lumbar vertebrae. He has 3 really degenerated vertebrae and 2 flat discs. The doctors say hold off on surgery as long as possible because he is only 39.|
I might as well join in and let you see how crazy I am. I am 34 and I am in nursing school full time. I have 5 beautiful children, 3 boys and 2 girls, ranging in age from 13 to 2. The kicker is that I am almost 10 weeks pregnant. This one was a surprise. I was all psyched about taking this summer off but in light of the pregnancy will be taking Pharmacology online this summer to lighten my load in the fall. I have always been a stay at home mom so this is going to be different. I chose to pursue my dream of being a nurse when my husband hurt his back and was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in his lumbar vertebrae.
I'm also worried about how it will affect my kids -- I have 4. The oldest 3 are in preschool 3 hrs/day and that will continue next fall, but I also have an infant who will need care Again, logically, I *know* my kids will be okay, and that I *can* find good care for them, but it is such a change, yk?
But I am *SO* excited about going back to school, and then having a job where I can earn decent money for my family. We have a farm, and my dh works *all* the time, but we are still always chasing our tails to pay the bills, yk?
