Is it wise to work while in the nursing program? I realize everyone's different, but is there anyone with experience who can offer the pros and cons?... Read More
- 0Jan 2, '13 by WantToBeMidwifeI start my ASN program Friday (OMG!!!) and I don't have to work, but I do have 5 children to take care of, as well as a house and piles and piles of laundry, cook dinner, etc. My husband works from home and has a very good job, but he is ALWAYS working so can't help out much. However, it's nice to have him home in case a kiddo gets sick and can't go to school, since I won't be able to stay home. IT's going to be a hard road, but I think it'll be okay...I'm hoping!!!
- 1Jan 3, '13 by scrubs&studsIt depends on you! I know some students who have graduated from my program and worked fulltime with children, but they were married and had help. I have more help now, but was a single parent I worked high part time (busy job with projects and dealines), school fulltime, and have a 7 year old with special needs. I don't know how I made it through with an 89%, but I did. You can make it. I feel for your situation because I also have to work because bills need to get paid. You just have to start and feel it out and adjust as bumps in the road come up. Best of luck!
