I am not sure how the program at ELAC is but I'm a first semester student in the RN program at LACC and I imagine that it must be pretty similar. Most people will tell you that it is really hard to hold a job and be in nursing school and this is very true, but not impossible. I'm working fulltime, however my employer is very flexible with my hours. This has to be the case for you if you intend to work. Currently, I spend Mondays from 8am-5pm at school, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 6am-3pm in clinicals, and some hours of Thursdays and Friday mornings doing online work, reading, and skills time. My work schedule consists of working 4 hours in the evenings, except full days on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Generally, I'm off from work and school on Sundays. It's not easy but it's doable if you have support, which I hope you do. Best of luck with school and everything!
