- 0Aug 9, '12 by nekozukiI work two jobs while doing nursing school, and there is no such thing as a day off. My school schedule is 7-2:15 Monday - Friday (Thursday and Friday are longer, 6-3:30 clinical hours), and my work schedule is a sitter/companion job at a nursing home from 4pm-6pm Mon - Thurs, and then from Friday to Sunday I work for a microbrewery at Disney for Friday 5-11, Sat 11am-11pm and Sunday 11am-11pm (with some fluctuations depending on business). I spend time with friends one evening a week, and I treasure my time at my weekend job because I get to goof off with co-workers and get a break from academia. Our LPN program is intense too, and we're down to 8 out of the original 26. Everyone else besides myself who worked failed out, which is why I advise against new students planning to rely on a steady paycheck. You don't want those odds!
