I work full time (3 twelves), I'm in a full-time concurrent ADN-BSN program (in my ADN classes Monday/Tuesday, BSN classes Wednesdays, AS clinicals Thursday/Friday and all of the prep work that comes with it) plus projects, checkoffs, and papers, etc, and I have a four-year-old at home. I've got As in all four classes (2 ADN, 2 BSN). I haven't had a day off since Spring Break, and between clinicals and working, I've been at my hospital for 12 of the last 14 days (I couldn't work on those two Mondays). I've been moving and out of my house from at least 7am (as early as 430am some days) to 7pm (or as late as 930-10pm some days) since late February, excluding Spring Break. I do have a husband at home to watch our son while I'm gone, so that does make it easier, but I am still doing all of the cooking and most of the cleaning, so it's a lot. I'm not gonna lie, it's hard, and if I didn't have to work, I wouldn't, but it's not impossible.
My school told me over and over again that I would not be able to work and be successful in the program, and that almost prevented me from taking my seat. I don't have a choice - I have to work. But, I'm proof that you can do it, and don't listen to the nay-sayers.
