    I work 30+ hrs a week and am a junior nursing student in a BSN program in Arkansas. I've worked my entire adult life (since I was 16) so I cannot imagine NOT working. And it is true what the nursing prof said in one of the above posts, "if you need something done, give it to a busy person".

    I am sitting for my NCLEX PN on April 5th and I graduate my RN program in October of this year. I work 3-5 12 hour shifts each week as a unit secretary and have 6 homeschooled children and a disabled husband.

    It can be done... you just have to try to NEVER get behind!
    OMG!!!! You are truly gifted!!

    Renee,

    I also live in Orlando. I work at one of the area hospitals as a pharmacy technician. I only work 16 hours a week, due to the large amount of study time needed but it pays bills so I cant complain.

    When did you become a CPhT? I'm up for the exam later this month. I'm using that to help pay for College. I live close to the Orlando area in Lakeland. What college are you going to I'm going to Polk Community College?

    Hi Placebo

    I got my CPhT back in the 90's. I went to Brewster Technical school in Tampa for training. I am going to Valencia Community College in Orlando but I've visited Polk - Nice campus I like Lake Elbert. I think you'll find that being a pharmacy technician especially in a hospital setting will be a great help in nursing school and beyond.

    I am in my third year of nursing school. I work about twenty hours a week doing office work. So far everything is going well! It just depends on your school schedule and how many hours you personally need to devote to studying. Give it a try and if you cant balance everything, quit. In a couple years you'll be making good money as a nurse, so it will be worth it!
