College with two under two?

So I have a 15 month old - who will be 17 months when his little brother is born in January. I really want to become a nurse. I did beauty school after high school, then I wanted to be a stay at home mom. I do not regret this and my husband and I planned having 2U2 but, I would love to start school summer 2019 or fall 2019. My husband wants me to wait until 2020 or until the boys are in pre-k. I feel like the sooner I start the better. What is everyones experience? Is it worth it to wait until they are older or should I get on it ASAP, will I be more likely to quit if I start sooner. Is it more beneficial to do pre reqs at home or online?

I went back to school with 4 under 4. Best decision of my life! And to be perfectly honest if it wasn’t for my kids I would have never went back. It’s not going to be easy, but the hard work and the long nights will pay off once you achieve your goals. Not to mention how proud you going to be once you graduate!! You can do it mama!! Best of luck to you!!!

I started college when my oldest was 3 years old and two weeks after I started I found out I was pregnant with my youngest. I never gave up though and actually was doing homework in my hospital bed. Lol

Hey! I have a 2.5 year old and a 8 week old and I’m a full time stay at home mom and full time online student. If you feel like now is the time then go for it!! If it gets to be too much see if a part time option for school is available. Good luck!

I'm 21 and about to have my first baby in a few days. In March 2019 I'll be starting my law degree online - super excited. I figured why not just jump at the opportunity and start as soon as possible? 😊
