Back to school after having kids

Is it possible? Yes. Is it easy? No.

Whatever route we decide to take in life is never going to be easy. Great things don’t come easy, and we all know it. But things become a little more challenging when there are kids involved. A mother would understand another mother because they have experienced similar situations.

I decided to go back to school after having my second child. He was less than 3 months old when I thought of giving it a chance. I had my mother visiting me, and so she would babysit my son, which made it a lot easier because I didn’t have to worry about him when I was in college. I started by taking one summer class to see if I can handle it. I went to class four days a week from 11 am to 2 pm, and I enjoyed every moment of it. I missed being in a classroom setting and learning. I did really well and ended up with an A in that class. That boosted my self-confidence and right after I found myself registering for the fall session.

I took two prerequisite classes for nursing, which were required for the application process. I did not want to overwhelm myself, and I did not register for other general education classes. My focus was to get into nursing school first, so I took Anatomy and Physiology 1 and Introduction to Chemistry. I took evening classes for the fall semester from 6 pm to 9 pm. I would take care of my children and finish up all the housework in the morning, and once my husband came home from work around 5:30 pm, I would leave for class. The schedule worked out well. I ended up getting A’s in both classes. That’s when I knew that I could do it!
