I'm very seriously considering going back to school, specifically for nursing. Are there any adult learners here that can tell me about how to afford school, living expenses and child care? I'm starting to get discouraged at the thought this may not even be a possibility.

Not sure if this is cringe or not. Just seems a bit tone deaf. I have multiple friends in salaried roles with great degrees (accounting, nursing, PhD in Chemical Eng) all who didn’t have paid maternity leave. Maybe focus on that before calling out the plight of the man
My dad is refusing to get the TDAP shot because he claims he has 0 exposure to pertussis since he’s in a mask all day every day (he’s a doctor in a hospital 🤦🏻♀️). I’m so angry & don’t know how to reason with him. I told him it can be fatal to infants under 6mos & he said, great, we’ll see the baby after 6 months. Have you guys encountered resistance from any family members to getting TDAP? How did you handle it? I don’t understand why he’s saying no, it has literally no downside.
Went through 2 egg retrievals & 1 miscarriage to get pregnant. I’ve been teleworking bc of COVID. However, I have to start going into the office during my third trimester.
