I find a lot of house sort of things get left until semester break, I just do the minimum during the busy end of semester. Usually for me this is week 6 until end of semester.
My advice for studying at home, is don't get behind. I did this semester and then spent my whole exam prep week catching up. For my last exam I spent one evening and the day of the exam studying. Even if you don't get ahead, try and stay on top of it.

@Mumsical, I'm looking into possibly doing the Bachelor of Nursing too, would you mind giving me some extra info re how many placements etc you have to do and when you say you are doing it full time I assume this is from home and hours wise it equates to full time hours and not part time hours? What year are you currently in? Thanks for sharing

Full time generally means 4 units (subjects) per semester. In first year nursing with CDU (if you want to do online definitely do it through CDU as its the best in offer for external students) you only have 1 prac unit in second semester. That prac includes 1 teaching week, 2 weeks aged care and 2 weeks in a hospital. Prac is arranged close to where you live - CDU students are all over Aus (not just the NT). I will be in Brisbane next year and it won't be an issue . 2nd year also just 1 prac unit in semester 2. 3rd year has 3 prac units and a specialist elective as they transition you into nursing. Doing it online you can either follow the recommended study path or you can follow your own, you can do one subject a semester if you want and then do 3 the next. It's all up to you. I am finding that I spend about 2-3hrs a day doing uni, with 4 units. More when I have essays due etc. it's very doable

Any sahm studying ??
I have a 3yo DS. In my 2nd year of Bachelor of Midwifery.
It is a lot of work but definitely worth it for me. But I am practically doing a full-time job without being paid.
Most of the women in the degree have children. In our degree we do need a lot of support, my son is in care 5 days a week, 2 at daycare and 3 with the grandparents.
Not sure where you live but each uni is different for clinical requirements and how their pracs work.
Ours is quite full on, 2-3 shifts a week for the entire semester plus al the follow throughs and theory.
I think the most important thing is that you are really passionate about what you want to study.
Also, our theory is mostly online so definitely need a lot of self-motivation or able to cram really well LOL.
Standards with the house and children do have to drop. My house doesn't get cleaned basically until uni holidays and DS watches a lot more TV than I would like, doesn't do all the activities I would like him to do and I would prefer he eat much homemade healthier snacks but I never get around doing snacks!
Good luck with whatever you decide.
