    Hi Chris,

    I go to school in Pittsburgh. I would check with some local schools in my area because these evening/weekend programs are cropping up left and right it seems. Without them a lot of people would not be able to become nurses. Good luck to you.

    Tonya,

    I checked some schools in the area and what I have found is that those that do offer the evening/weekend degrees offer them for the RN -> BSN programs, not for the "generic" track nursing programs for those without nursing experience. Is your program for experienced nurses as well?

    Hi Chris,

    My program is the generic program for those of us new to nursing. Are you able to find an evening job so that you can go to school in the day?

    I could find an evening job but it wouldn't pay anywhere near what I'm making now and I still have to support a family, mortgage, car payments, etc. So, it would definitely be nice to be able to go to school in the evenings and weekends, it looks like I'm just going to have to juggle work and school as best as possible. Thanks for your input.
