    I just graduated in June and had all of my classes prior to the start of the actual nursing classes. I did take several classes towards my BSN while doing classes/clinicals. I worked the entire time I was in the program.
    My first year I worked 32-40 hours a week, second year I worked 24-32 hours. I got good grades and never had to pull an all nighter. I know several people who worked during the entire program and did fine (actually it has helped us find jobs after graduation) however I also know people who had to quit their jobs because they were failing.
    Like PurifyMe said you will not be able to choose your locations, instructors, or days. Things may change and you will have to be able to work around them. Most of the teachers I really liked, maybe one or two I didn't. I did rotations at several nursing homes, B North, Jewish, Christ, Shriner's, Mercy Anderson, Mercy Western Hills, Hospice of Cincinnati, an adult day care, and with a home health care orginization.
    Good luck on your journey!
