    I got a job immediately after my first semester of nursing school as a tech in Long Beach, CA.
    @Jayelle314 I am in Long Beach as well and have been thinking about applying for a patient tech position. I am about to end my 3rd semester at CSULB. One of my classmates told me she has been applying for tech positions for a while and has been unable to even get an interview. How did you do it? Any tips? Thanks!

    Does anybody think it is possible to work 20 hours a week as a tech and attend a one-year accelerated BSN??

    It's possible but probably difficult. My program is an 8 semester pre-licensure "ground up" one, they told us not to work more than 16 hours a week which is silly, IMO, but for some, not really too silly, if you know what I mean.


    In a one year accelerated program, coming from somewhere completely outside the healthcare system/hospital setting, you're going to have soooo much to learn in such a short amount of time that it may be really difficult.


    One thing I've noticed, after all is said and done, nursing is about 80% time management. If you're good at managing your time you can probably do it, if not, well, you'll learn something abut yourself if you try.

    I worked my first semester of nursing school full time, and it was really tough. When I cut it down to about 20 hours a week it was a breeze, but I don't know if that is just in comparison to what I was previously doing! I know one-year programs are really intense (I'm in a two-year second degree BSN program), so I would definitely not work more than that.
