I have to work full time while attending nursing school and I want to know if it is possible to do this while getting 7 or 8 hours of sleep (I cannot function on less hours). Has anyone here done all this while maintaining a GPA of 3.4 or higher?

I do it. But on clinical days I only get 4 hours of sleep. I work 8 hours then go to clinical for 8, 2 days out the week. The other 2 days I work 8 and go to school for 4 then study for 2 to 4 hours. The one day I do not have school I work 8. Study 6 then get about 6 hours sleep lol.
Then the two day I have off I study 8 and sleep 8 . So all that to say I get 8 hours of continuous sleep 2 days out the week.
My last year in nursing school I got around 4 hours of sleep. I only worked 16-24 hours a week (cut down to ZERO hrs/week for the last month, lol!). My grades were no where near a 3.4 though lol. I did get a 3.0 two out of three trimesters though.
