'To all nurses with children; please don't feel guilty'


Lisa, best of luck with your course! My Mum somehow juggled the course and being Mum of four, and it will not be easy for you (I juggled the course and a job for three years, no children, and that has been a challenge), but it WILL be worth it. Your children wont appreciate it all the time during this course, but in the long run they will, 3 years is not that long for the benefits and achievements you will gain from being a children's nurse. It is no real time span in their lives, and just be present with them when you can - and be productive when you need to be. A delicate balance, but definitely worth it. Enjoy :)
