Good for you! I told my dh I was tired of doing the exact same job as the RN's do and getting much less pay for it. So my license will be well worth it for me.

Awesome! That sounds really interesting.

Well I went to get my books and took my ods with me so he could check out the college. He told me he is very excited for me and he wanted to read my American History book lol! The only problem I have so far is I can't afford a new computer until I get my financial aid and the one I have is slow as molasses.

I am an orchestra teacher. I did my masters full time while working full time. It wasn't fun, to say the least! But it is definitely do-able. I did online classes so I could do the work after the kiddos went to bed at night.

Re: Anyone WOH fulltime and go to school fulltime?

I work full time as a high school teacher and I am in the process of finishing up my Master's in Biology. My husband has been a life saver taking care of the kids while I attended class in the evenings and dealt with my crazy advisor who gave me a week's notice to complete my thesis because he wanted to present my research.

Re: Anyone WOH fulltime and go to school fulltime?

I work sort of full time. I teach Mon-Thurs and once a month on Friday's we have field trips. I am also a grad student full-time. My grad program is online, but starting in a month I have field work I must do weekly.

She also had some week-long intensive classes thrown in there, so if she had a week vacation from school, she just went to class for five full days that week.

It was tough; she was exhausted all the time, I work FT & had DD by myself most evenings, DD missed her...but I'm glad she just bit the bullet & did it all at once. Now she's doing her internship. She'll be done with that in December & will do one class per week during the fall semester...then she'll have a lot more professional opportunities, we'll have more income, blah, blah, blah.
Whew, that is a tough schedule; but when she is done--it will be worth it. I didn't know you lived in CNY. My husband's family is from Naples; but they live in Fairport. My family is in WNY.

My dh is working on his BA and works part-time. In a few weeks, our younger son will be starting kinder; so it will free him up some to get his work done.

I am considering starting my masters or do my National Board Certification (I'm a teacher). I really, really would like that masters degree as I've put it off for a long time.
