Congrats Catherine! What uni is it??

I will be going to Canberra Uni.
oh wow congrats to you. how has your first sem gone?

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!

oh wow yay for studying with 5kids. how did you go in your first 2years? im not sure how the kids will go. i know in the end it will work out fine bu it scares me alittle also.
would love to hear how things have been for you

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.

im kinda thankful that my hubby is a teacher and has set hours and days. will make me doing shift work so much easier to handle.

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...

in preparation for exams... how is everyone coping with study and kids??
Posted 28 May 2012 - 02:01 PM
I finished my semester on thursday, still have one assessment which is due on friday (my learning plan) and no exams, i get a full 2mths off
Posted 28 May 2012 - 05:36 PM
oh wow.. thats awesome adnama...... i get 6 weeks off once i have finished my 4 exams....
Posted 28 May 2012 - 06:04 PM
Wow 4 exams
I'm only part time and did one subject, hence I get out of an exam, if I was full-time i'd only have one exam.
