    i am in a four semester fnp program, and just completed my second semester. the last two semesters i worked 36 or 32 hours/week, working every other weekend. we had class on two days, which meant most of my days were working or at school. i studied everywhere and on every day off!

    in the fall, we begin clinicals requiring 24 hours/week. i will be then going to 24 hrs/week (again, every other weekend and one day during the week).

    if you are dedicated and motivated, it can certainly be done! i have to work and make some income, as well as carry my husband and my insurance.

    good luck!
