Hi Catherine,

I'm doing full-time nursing with 5 kids.  It's hard, but you can do it (I also work).  This is the first year all of mine are at school.  I'll be finished by the end of this year, which is really exciting.

Congratulations on your offer.  This is the start of your new life!

I don't have 5 kids, but I have 3. It has worked pretty well for me. We have more placement than the nursing students, but have managed well with the support of my husband and parents. If you have an au pair you should be fine if she is flexible to work around shift work when you are on placement.

I can't believe first semester is almost over. I just have one more assignment due in later this week. It is almost finished but it has been the most pointless assignment I have ever completed so I am quite resentful of the time it is taking up.
Exams are next...
