I am looking for some insight about working while in school. I have been accepted into the August 2013 cohort of the MAGELIN program at the College of Mount St. Joseph's in Cincinnati. It is advised to work no more than 16 hours a week during this accelerated 15 month program. I was hoping to keep my foot in the door at a local hopsital, but I do not want work getting in the way of my academics. I was hoping to touch base with some individuals who have worked while in this program.
Any input is welcome!

My opinion is slightly different. I say don't work unless you absolutely positively have to work. An accelerated program demands everything you have. You will be more tired than you have ever been before, study more material in a shorter period, find time for clinicals, have almost no social life for the duration of the program.
I'm not trying to be overwhelmingly negative, but that's how it works. I'm glad I did it, but would I want to do it again? I think I might do the regular B.S.N. program instead,
