Our program is an ADN and very intense. We have an absentee policy so our students have to attend. In fact, if they didn't I'm not sure how they would make it. You need to set aside time to read and do homework assignments. I used to put my 1 yr old daughter in my lap and read my book aloud to her like it was one of her books. You may want to talk to your nursing instructors and see what answers they give you. Anyway, I hope all goes well and look forward to having another nurse....

What you may conclude, is that each person has a different path that works for them. I say find your own path, and trust your own voice... especially the one that is telling you that you will be fullfilled in this career. Everything else is debatable.

That comes naturally to me, i was never one of those 3.99999999999999 GPA students who memorize everything on a page from a book and get an A on every test. However, jsut b/c nursing school isnt structured like anything eles, i find myself excelling b/c the tests require you to think. Not cram and memorize. As far as working going, i would say it is possible... IF your job allows you to be able to study while your there. Thats the only reason it has worked for me thus far.
