I am new to this message board, and I'm glad to have found it (thank goodness!). There's so much info & insight
Well I'd really like some input on the subject of being a full-time nursing student and working part-time.
I am starting the BScN program at a university fresh out of highschool in September as a first year student. And from what I have gathered from the board, in general, nursing students are very busy and pressed on time. My course schedule consists of approx. 21 hours/week. And I was wondering if anyone experienced going to school F/T and working P/T and how it affected you. I was told to hold off on getting a job until you've gotten a hang of how the transition from highschool to university goes. So I'm eager in knowing if it will have an affect on my studies? Thanks in advance!
Oh, and if anyone has any advice for new nursing students (especially ones straight out of highschool) please feel free to add on, Thanks!

Thanks everyone. I appreicate it.
It's going to be hard - I have to commute to school too, which takes 45min-1hr there and back, so that'll eat uup precious precious time - unless I use it to study on the subway. so I might
have to work 2days/week MAX, but only after I've become more familiar on how my actual days go as a Uni student.....tuition+the cost of books+cost of transportation+university expenses reallllly adds up. I'd like to help keep the expenses down, lol.
Mariannsi: I'm wondering what a CNA is....I have no prior nursing experience, but I'm sure we have those in Canada.
