- 0Jun 6, '11 by missjenmarieDoes anyone here work as a staff nurse in the hospital while studying Masters of Arts in Nursing in University of the Philippines-manila? I need some advice. I don't know if I can combine working and studying since the school will be 2 hours away from my work place. I just went to UP this morning and they said that the enrolment is on June 9. I still don't have an idea on the schedule that they will give me.
