I'm actually doing my Bnursing at the moment. Half way through year 2 with three young kids and a FIFO husband. When doing up my timetable I try avoid any classes before 9am so I can do school drop off. Although for one semester I had an 8am lecture (on a Monday morning!! Eww). But we hinted around for an awesome daycare with a before and after school care program affiliated with DD1s primary school. DD2 was only 11 months old when I started and damn it was hard. But it gets easier. I think the biggest thing is finding early/late care for when prac is on. Because shifts can start as early as 6am or go as late as 11pm.
