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?

Think if you want to start school soon you should go for it. Either way time will fly bye. I had no choice when I had my daughter. Had to go back to school . I love taking online classes. It’s so flexible and I have more time with my daughter, since she in middle school she always has something, I can take my laptop and do homework where ever I go. Wish you the best , hopefully you figure it out.... Go for it πŸ˜ŠπŸ’ΌπŸ““

My daugther is 8 months and I'm about to start a two year nursing program. It's going to be difficult either way but do able. Also many of the science courses have a lab portion that will need to be taken in person (not online). I would suggest starting your pre reqs now and take them 1 at a time so you can do your best. Nursing programs are competitive so aim for As & Bs. Make sure you have extra support at home with the kids so you can study a lot. Don't put school off any longer, just do it!
