hello all! i just got a job as a resident assistant at my university where i attend my nursing school. at first i was a bit hesitant when i got the job, due to the rigors of ns, but then again, the free room and stipend would tremendously help my mom not have to worry about paying my rent (which is not cheap), as well as my future tuition (since my scholarship will cover me for only this academic year). so for those nursing students that are (or were) ras...
how do you manage to do it all??? the program planning, all the events, the 'on duty' or 'on call' schedule, room checks, resident conflict resolutions, etc. and still have time for your studies? nursing comes #1 for me and if i feel that i am overwhelmed i will not be hesitant to quit. but with this economy, and the competitiveness to even be able to even get this job, i don't want to lose it either.
if you have any advice on how you managed to do it, please share on how to survive. lol
