I really don't think you are crazy because when it boils down to it, "you do what you gotta do" and if your heart, mind, and soul is into it - failure is not an option. For instance, I earned my AAS and BS while working full-time and being a single parent of (2). Now, I too, am looking to start my career as an RN but I will first start by becoming an LPN because of my current situation. I plan on entering Bronx Community College's (Bronx, NY) in Fall of 2007. Their program is only offered in the evening's from 5:30 -10:00 p.m., I still plan on working full-time in my current position at Montefiore Medical Center as the Clinical/Administrative Coordinator for CT Surgery which is from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30. I know I will be beyond exhausted but the mentality is already there, I work with patients everyday and just want to take it a step higher providing medical care. Besides, as I said previously, my heart, mind, and soul will be 100% into this - so failure is NOT an option on my end.
Good Luck to you and you can do it!
Quote from Christos Anesti
Has anyone ever attempted working full-time while going to a FT lpn program?
I work 3rd shift from 11p - 730a and school starts at 8a - 330p
Am I crazy? Anyone try this before? If so, Advice! Please!
