Can you advise this potential student nurse?
“I’ve always wanted to be a nurse but I put it on the back-burner when I had my first child. Now I’m 34 and haven’t worked since my youngest child was born (he’s now two).
“I’m desperate to move my life on and build a future for my children, but is it sensible to start a nursing course with two children and very little support?
“I’ve heard that it’s the equivalent to working full-time plus essays, lectures, exams etc on top, which sounds impossible to juggle around childcare.
“But other people must be in the same situation, how do people manage? I’d really appreciate any advice or pointing in the right direction!”
