Hey everyone. I am currently a pre nursing student. I wanted to ask everyone how possible it is to hold a job while in nursing school. How do clinicals work with your work schedule? Is there much flexibility? Just wondering.

I dont understand how you guys think it's so hard to do this? Lol - sorry. I am a mother, I run/own my own Crossfit gym, workout daily, work 15-18 hours a week, and have all As in nursing school currently!
It's not hard, you just need a consistent system. Focus. Get er' done.
What's your end-game here? A cookie? A pat on the back?
People struggle. Congrats if you don't. You've also been doing it for how long, exactly?
OP, it really just varies by person. We're all in different programs, at different levels, with varying support systems and individual "tool kits." Maybe a third of my class works? Very few full time, but some. I have a single mom friend with four kids who works and is still one of the best students. I also have a friend who worked full time nights, had one kid and a wife who couldn't cut it. And everything in between.
