i'm done with my CNA course (paying out of pocket) i just have to take the GA exam. i applied for a job at an ALF and they pay around $8-8.50 per hour. i'm also want to take prereqs for nursing school. i'm thinking about moving out of my boyfriend's house (he doesn't work and i'm working at Jcpenneys) to this 1 bedroom apartment ($365 a month plus some utilities) but i don't know if i can make a living off $8 an hour.
I really want to move out on my own without any distractions from him. he knows this is hard work that i'm about to put in and he wants to play like it is no big deal. now my question is can i make it financially as a CNA. i want to work the 7-3 morning shift and take classes in the afternoon or evening. is it possible? i really need some advice.
