It's been a while since I've posted on here!
Ok, so here's my question.......I will be starting pre-reqs at TCC in July, but like many other students, I would like to work as a CNA while doing pre-reqs and during nursing school. Here's my concern though......the pay for CNA's (unless I am mistaken) is pretty low here in Tulsa. My problem is....I have bills here ladies and I don't think I can live on $9-12/hr. here even working full-time. Now I know there are TONS of scholarships you can apply for while in nursing to help with living costs, tuition, etc., but what about while doing pre-reqs? Am I being unrealistic here? Don't get me wrong here, I will not be quiting my job here, even while doing pre-reqs, until and if I can find a solution here, but......any suggestions or tips?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
