Thenuttytart answers:

I admire you, I have been considering re educating myself, by the way how many hours do you have in a day where you are? I wouldn't know how to fit all that in! It sounds like a lot to take on but it depends on how long each course really is & how much time you have to spend. I would be envious if you could do all that in one go, but go for it if you can fit it all in, I would give it a go providing you would not be sacrificing quality for quantity, or driving yourself too hard, otherwise maybe contemplate splitting them up & do a couple at a time??

Full time is normally just that, so I personally would advise you focus on just one to start with and if you have time later consider a home study course.

Only you know this Tara. I would advise that you start off slowly. First off, you've been a little off colour lately. Secondly, taking on a course when you haven't done anything for a long time can be hard work, until you get back into the way of studying. It takes time and effort, and you have a family to used up all your energy. :-)

I'd start off with one part time course and see how it goes. You can take on more as you go along. Take your time. You have all the time in the world.

I would only do the courses that would benifit me, for example both me and you are intrested in the medical field i would like to do a degree in paramedic science so i would take that course and any others that would benifit, if you want to go to do nursing then go for the numeracy and lit level 2 and then the nursing course there is no need to add more pressure on yourself unnessacerily.

Good on you, Tara. I work in a college and know it's never too late! Good luck.

One tiny word of caution - it does get more difficult to learn as you get older (although I know you're nowhere near my grand old age), so it may be better to concentrate on fewer things at a time.
Having said that, it's a very personal thing and you may be someone who learns more easily with more different subjects at a time to switch between.

If you do decide to narrow it down, you haven't said which courses you're interested in, but I would maybe suggest going for the couple that you are either most interested in, or already have some knowledge of. This will make it easier and give you a mental boost as you can progress more quickly than in something which you may be starting from scratch.
