Dont be nervous. You'll do just fine. You'll have it harder then some people in your class who don't have kids. You wont have as much opportunity to study/practice. You'll have other things on your mind. But when you are in class, be at class. Don't worry if the baby is being diapered right, the dishes are done and the trash was taken out. Wipe your mind clean, open it up to learn and absorb. When you schedule time to study. Study. Don't do the dishes or dust. Study. I was a stay at home mom for the last four years and I did extremely well in my EMT class despite several aggravating outside factors that should have slowed me down. If I could do it, you can do it too!!thank you all for your help i am really excited about this course. and a little nerves too as i have been a stay at home mom for six years.

My dad works for good humor bryers and makes push up pops. LOLhttp://cgi.ebay.com/Brown-Paper-School-book-Blood-and-Guts_W0QQitemZ280428179175QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUS_Childrens_Books?hash=item414ad26ee7
Don't laugh... This Book ROCKS... it was this book (as well as a combination of Doctor McCoy and Doctor Crusher) that got me initially interested in Medcine and Biology back when Push Pops were all the rage... ^_^ Or, if you are must, find a good anatomy book and start there... you can never have enough anatomy...
Right. Who'd want an emergency medical provider to actually have anything beyond a baseline interest in what they're doing?
I seem to remember you being big on the whole education thing. Undoubtedly you are remarking on the low level of education involved in the EMT-B. In that case, why wouldn't you want to encourage someone taking a course that is not required to be very hard, to make the effort to extend themselves in the interests of building their clinical knowledge.
