I'm in my first semester of Nursing (in New Zealand) now after completing a 'foundation certificate' because I did my last year of shcool abroad.
At the moment I have Tuesday-Thursday in class then a four day weekend from Friday untill the following Monday. I study probably 2-3 hours on the mondays and fridays and close to four or five on Saturday/Sunday. So roughly 15 hours. I also tend to study before/after classes or during breaks whilst I'm at school, but that's hard to calculate as social time with class mates can often interupt.
Also Starting a new job soon as a community support worker (15hours pw.) so I'm a bit worried whether it'll impact on grades or not.
I know it's a bit 'comparing apples with oranges' to compare with people outside my own country, but it was just a bit of a curiosity that I thought I might ask.
So how long long do you guys spend studying?
Any advice or experiences from similar situations that I could draw from would be much appreaciated too.
