Try really hard to figure out a way to set your life up so you won't have to work - or only work very, VERY part time.
have waiting lists miles long and will happily boot you to the curb if you start having trouble.
There are those mythical students who work full time and raise kids. I, for one, don't buy it. They are either lying, or have vast support systems of family available for child care or are UNICORNS.
When I was in school I watched the students who tried to be Superwoman drop out, fail, withdraw and go on academic probation.
I worked every other weekend as an EMT or CNA, and that was it. I wish more Nursing schools would be realistic with their students and just say, straight up: you will not have a life. Family, friends and work are all on the back burner until graduation. PERIOD.
