- 0Apr 26, '13 by KencanwinI am currently working full time but it only because the pre-reqs are online and in the evening, once the program begins I will be leaving my full -time job and working a part-time desk job that will allow me to "work" and study at the same time. Luckily my wife has already done the math so it will be a tight 4 semesters but in the end it will be worth it.

Quote from LauraashI am a single mom to 2 kids (6yr & 7mths). I am in 2 quarter of nursing school. I have worked full time up till Feb 1. At which time I will start 32 hrs a week. Its not easy, but IM trying my best and know I won't be given more than I can handle. In my own opinion, one must do what they must do to survive. I have no one I can move inn with. I know I can't survive with 2 kids on 12.45$ an hour. I know in my brain, and most days in my heart, that 2 yrs of sacrifice to finish my ADN is worth it for myself and my babies. I have to work. I don't have the option not to. But BC I have my kids, and they rely on me, my motivation to multi task, work, school, cook, clean, etc. most definitely helps me push forward. I think everyone has to find that one thing that lights fire under their butt, and hold onto it with all your might.
- 0Jun 16, '13 by Mandy0728I've posted a similar thread like this one before. Since its summer, I work full time about 50 hrs per week & when fall semester starts, I'll be working 10 hours per week. I also have a 6 year old & we have my boyfriends 9 year old on the weekends. If I get accepted, I'll start the BSN program in January, in which I plan to quit my job of 8 years. I'm nervous to not have a job, but I need to have the time to study & spend time with my son on top of classes and clinicals. I'm thankful that I get a lot of grants & scholarships plus I take out the Max amount of loans each sem to live off of. I also get food stamps as well which really help plus my boyfriend makes decent $ as well. We're both nervous for me to quit, but in my situation, it's the best thing. Good luck to you!
