    Hi ladies. I have read your blog and I have some questions. I am looking into Nursing School at BC but I need to know a few things. I am a full time working mother. What hours are you in school each semester? Do you have anytime to have a part time job? Any information would greatly be appreciated! Thanks!

    It's very complicated. The schedule is different every semester and is always subject to change. Clinical is usually Thursday Friday. I've had to be there as early as 6am and as late as 4pm. Class times anywhere starting from 8am to 12pm. You'll usually have one day off a week between Mon-Wed depending on the schedule. Then some classes have mandatory labs (pediatrics in third semester, and psych just recently started doing lab hours) and you'll also have skills lab hours to complete over the semester.

    You MIGHT have one week per semester that you don't have an exam.

    I have not worked and most of my class, if they were working, now they don't. We're about to start 4th semester.

    I do not recommend trying to have a job while doing this. It's an extremely rigorous program and very demanding of time. I'm a wife and mom of 2 (5 & 7 y/o), and it has been very hard. If you can find a way to do it without working, don't work. Otherwise your going to need a job that is super flexible and understanding, which can be hard also.

    I know it's hard, but it is so worth it. If you can make it work, do it. It is the most rewarding experience and you learn so much about nursing and about yourself along the way. The instructors are all incredible and they want you to do your best.

    Hoping for the best for you, good luck!
