Quote from Magnus
I start school next week and was wondering if I need to cut back on my work schedule. I bartend four nights a week totalling about 28 hours a week. I am a 4.0 student but have many people telling me I need to cut back or I will never make it. What's you thoughts?
I'm assuming that you have that 4.0 from college classes (you're probably over 21). Nursing classes aren't (ain't) like other classes. The first semester they are trying to "Weed you out". Your first semester is the most citical (IMHO).
In Micro, A&P, etc, you may have only had to write 2 papers per semester.
Normal 1st. semester nursing classes are usually;
Fundamentals = at least 1 paper or critical thinking exercise A WEEK !
Pharm = drug cards, critical thinking, math problems, Labs with skills exams
Assessment = practice, practice, practice
Clinicals = drive an hour, stay confused for 6 hours, drive back home, write journals, papers, presentations (uniform washing, etc)
TEST STUDY TEST STUDY TEST STUDY TEST STUDY
For free drinks, I already have all the papers you'll need.
You will be a very popular student.
Best of Luck in all your classes,
