The Student Parent Success Network was my lifeline. The nursing program was very stressful so it was a place that I could just vent out and be myself in a non-judgmental environment. I was with people with similar backgrounds and challenges so it made it easier to talk about my problems. I found friends, we shared resources, and it was really a lifeline to me in my nursing career. I understand students need to work hard and focus, but they need to remember to breathe and find extracurriculars they're passionate about to get involved in. I was passionate about being a student and being a parent.
