how to schedule class and work
- 0Jul 10, '12 by nafrate[color=#500050]i share a car and childcare duties with my husband and he works 5:15am-2pm (i stay home and watch kiddo while he works, he stays home and watches kiddo while i work/go to school). i need to take bio 202 in the fall. i also need to get a job, as a cna/patient care tech/etc. available job openings seem to have hours of 7 am-7 pm, 3 pm-11pm, or 7pm-7 am.
if i did a morning class i would have the same availability for work everyday (3pm-11pm and 7pm-7am). if i did a night class, i would have open availability for any shift on tuesday, thursday, friday, saturday and sunday but no availability on mondays and wednesdays.
i don't know how willing employers are to work around lack of availability on days i'll have class. taking a morning class would be inconvenient but doable, as i could take my husband to work and then go to class while my sister watches my son. i live far off any bus lines so public transportation wouldn't work for me.
should i take a morning class or a night class?

Some students will scoff that you cannot learn A&P online, but if you are a self-starter and put in the effort you can do it and get an A (while actually learning the material). You know the saying...you get out of it what you put in it. Even ASU accepts the online lab classes for full credit.
- 0Jul 17, '12 by sweetjess321Good luck whichever you choose. I took A&P 1 & 2 and Micro at Phoenix College (not online), in the evening and worked my full time job 7am-5pm so it worked for me. I have learned that if you want to finish school, you need to put school first, so if it were me, I would sign up for whichever class I wanted (morning or night) THEN find a job that will work with those hours. Even if it's a part time job. If you get a job as a CNA a lot of the time, you will have a rotating schedule so that wouldn't work with your school hours, however, some places will work with your schedule. I'm trying to get into a hospital as a CNA, but after all of the applications, no luck so far. I start nursing school in August and I need to keep my full time job but don't know how I'm going to do it. We all need luck huh?
