im doing my bachelor of nursing, im in my 4th year, its only a 3 year course but i put off my placements as i was pregnant... im due to graduate in Nov... I do the course externally which i would say is easier with kids only because you dont have to go to uni, organise child care etc... but with that said you have to make sure you have enough time at home to study.
i will be hopefully doing my midwifery next year, in SA now i think you have to be a working RN to be able to do it...
I love my course, so glad it is finishing though, the pracs are the hard part, i will be doing a 4 week placement where i basically have to work 5 days a week 40 hours no pay obviously, so itll be tough seeing as bub will have to go into care sad but itll be ok hopefully...
the workload honestly, its not too bad, the readings will take up a fair amount of time, but you cant fit those in around naps feeds... there isnt a huge overload of assignments either, but sometimes they do all come at once from different subjects so it can be a little stressful... if your too worried you could always consider going part time for the first year or so because im pretty sure i know a few people who changed to full time half way, or even the other way around, (started fulltime was too much so went part time)
good luck with it all,
its a fun course im sure you would love it
