So, I am a Junior (finally!) after much struggles and having to be retake a class. My school is on the semester system, from August-December. I am taking thirteen credit hours, Med Surge II (7 creds, which includes a 3-hour lecture and a 12-hour clinical) and then two online courses, one for cultural competence and the other for gerontology (though they are considering making this a one-credit hour course, which would make my load 11 credit hours).
However, I work two PCA jobs. One is casual and the other is student position. I have had some scheduling difficulties and have thought about quitting the casual job, but have decided against it for networking purposes post-graduation.
My boss at the student position (the higher paying one) asked me how many hours am I going to want to work. Honestly, I have no idea. I have never had online courses before and I'm afraid I will be tempted to pick up too many hours.
How many hours would you work at both jobs? I live at home with my mother, I have no debt, car or house payments, and I'm childless.
