I am a pre-nursing student in my last semester before nursing school. I have consistently searched for healthcare and non-healthcare positions in the town which I live and go to school for over a year but to no avail. Currently, I am faced with two job offers (part-time & flexible for students) One job is at a hospital 45 minutes away from the town in which I live as a patient care technician and gain valuable experience for my future profession as a nurse. The hospital job pays more hourly and offers more hours. The other job is local as a package handler in which I would work approximately 15 hours/week 5 minutes away from my house. I'm still weighing the pros and cons but needed outside advice for factors I may or may not have considered.

I currently volunteer at a local (you may be wondering if I applied at this facility...yes multiple times) until I found an employer who would hire me in the health-care field (preferably in the same town I live and attend school). I am neither married nor a mother so I have, to some degree a significant amount of down time when I am not studying.
Oh yeah, I must work in order to provide support for myself.
