    Default External vs Internal??

    I will be applying next monday to do a bachelor of nursing next year and was planning on studying externally. I will be starting it part time to see how i go as i will have 3 kids under 5, but im hoping i will be able to step it up to fulltime. Im just wondering if you studied externally and wished you did it internally or vice versa? DD1 will be starting kindy next year and i will be willing to put DD2 and bub#3 in daycare for a day or 2 if i have to, i will also have people willing to babysit if i need them too. im just been thinking it might be better to do it internally as i will be more disciplined but still unsure!

    so basically im after you advice and what you did and if the way you studied worked well?

    TIA

    I study externally and LOVE it. I feel completely in contact and supported by my uni, lecturers and other students. No way would I cope driving and being somewhere on time with 3 kids and a workaholic husband to take into consideration. I work solid 9-5 Tuesday and 9-12 Wednesday.
    I'm doing 2 units and that is MORE than enough. I don't want the kids in care anymore and I couldn't possibly handle the workload.
    I'm so far sitting on a distinction average so I'm doing something right. I can't recommend a GOOD external course enough.
