    No one likes working weekends -- so if weekends are the only time you can work, they will definitely hire you. If your class schedule is something like MWF, I would work TR and every other weekend. That is a very doable schedule (in fact, it's what I'm doing right now, and I'm 3 semesters away from my BSN).
    Thanks, I'll give it a shot! c:

    Facilities are usually understaffed on weekends. You have a great shot at getting them. Best of luck

    I agree with the other post. I'm currently going to a four year college for nursing and I have to go five days a week. Therefore, I only work every other weekend. Not many hours, but I'm getting experience. Where I work, they were more than willing to work with my schedule. Also, I got all of my classes set up where I'm done around 1:00. So, if I HAD to I could work 3-11 shifts. Maybe, if you need to work full time get your classes set where you'd be done and able to get to work at 3, or work from 7-3 and then go to classes.

    Hope this helps.
