I'm a 2nd semester student. 1st semester was a lot of work, and a lot of fun. The teachers are supportive and the classmates are amazing. I was able to balance a part time job and my family with nursing school
, while keeping my grades high. I wouldn't want to try a full time job, but it's doable if your employer is flexible.
104 schedule is like this: 2 days clinical, 2 days lecture (2 hours each), pharmacology is 1 day (3 hour) drug calc is online. My pharm and one lecture day was combined so I had Sat, Sun and Wed without classes. I hope this helps.
In 105, there is something M-F, but working is possible if your boss is flexible on your hours. Make time to study, you will need it. For me 8-10 hours a week is probably what I did, but most of it was ad-lib.
I had flash cards I would peek at at work during slow times.
I listened to lectures on my mp3 player while driving and shopping.
I had a study group that was amazing and we stayed focused.
Oh, by the way, almost all the teachers record their lectures for you and you are allowed to record your own.
