I failed NCLEX..........I made it thru school and got stopped. Gotta say and warn, if you do not have a good support system, nursing school is gonna be very challenging.........BUT, don't ever ever ever let that stop you. I pretty much graduated and became a SAHM while my husband started work full time. Had no time for myself since I didn't have a reason to leave, even if I had to study.



So now, plan B........keep studying and PASS!



Thanks for all your support for those who have read my past posts. And keep going, you'll all get there :)

I am really trying to decide if I should finish my pre-req's before I have another baby. I figure I won't be done with those for atleast another 2 years and that means my DD would be well over 4... Ugh.

Ladies, I had to decline my position in the nursing program due to some financial situations that popped up. I'll need to work full time for us to get by. Hopefully I can apply next year. I'm heart broken. :(

Kaplan is $500 right now and I don't have stable sitters to get me thru a week. (online is outta the question) I am coming up with a plan during vacation next week. I could use one right about now!
