Our local hospital has started a new position, Patient Sitter, if you can believe it! Anyway, I believe this might be the key to working while studying....apparently the position entails staying with patient and helping them to meet their minor needs, like ambulating to the bathroom, water, etc...I have applied and hope to get in, sounds like it might have some time to study, whilst getting paid and helping people when needed, as well!,
Has anyone heard of such a position before? I believe it is a great idea, when my DH was in the hospital this summer, I was his (nonpaid, LOL) patient sitter, getting him what he wanted.
This could be the answer to the age old question of how to work while attending nursing school! Kewl.
