Calhoun Community College Full Time & Work
- 0Jul 7, '11 by naijausaHey, I just recently found out I was accepted into Calhoun's Traditional ADN (full time) but I also have a full time night job working 40 hours a week (tues-sat). I am considering getting a part time job but I am wondering if anyone is or has been in my shoes. Can anyone tell me how much time I will need to study while I am in the program? Is working part time the best choice or is it possible to pass with A's and B's while working full time.Last edit by naijausa on Jul 7, '11
- 1Jul 8, '11 by cjungenI am just finishing up the LPN program at Calhoun. The first 2 semesters the LPN's and ADN's are together so I can tell you how it will be. The first semester you have class 2 days a week 8-2 and clinicals 1 day 8-1, if you want to make A's and B's you need to study 3-4 hours a day (the reading for lecture takes a lot of time). Plan on starting to study for tests at least a week ahead. There were a few people who worked full time but most were not A-B students. If at all possible work only part time. 2nd semester is even harder, school is 3 days a week 8-2 and clinicals 1 day 8-5. The material is harder and a lot of study is required. If you make it to 3rd semester then life is good.
- 0Jul 8, '11 by 5LR14Hi, first of all congrats on getting in! I'm in the RN program right now. There are some people who are working while going to school. I don't work, and I'm sure that I would have a harder time if I did. However, it seems to be very doable for some. It really just depends on the person. Good luck!
