    I'm in a vocational nursing program. My commute is an hour and 5 minutes each way. I carpool with another student most days. It's not so bad. Lots of time to think and study together.

    It's a beautiful day to save lives.

    About 40 minutes from campus and clinicals. I don't think it's that bad.

    It was 5 minutes to my LPN school, and now 10 minutes to my local community college. Life is beautiful.

    About 30 mins... because where I live most places are 30 mins away.

    Good day:

    When traffic is ok to good (in my favor), it is 30 minutes one way. When traffic is not in my favor, then it runs 45 to 60 minutes one way.

    Thank you.

    45 mins to an hour, depending on which way i go and how traffic is. It's not so bad i love listening to the radio so thats a plus.

    10 minutes when I was in LPN school. 15 for RN school.

    However, my LPN school did tell us in advance and required we signed a form that said we were notified that clinicals could be within a FIFTY (50) mile radius of the school. For people who were 25-30 miles away from the campus were looking at a horrid commute time especially when it was in the winter and we had to be to the clinical site by 645am. Luckily we didn't have any sites that were 50 miles away from the school, but we did have some that were 20 or better.

    My commute is 15-20 minutes depending on traffic but nothing too serious.

    I am an hour away when there is traffic. If traffic is light, I can make it in 45-50 min. I am thinking about getting a new car due to the commute.

    When I was in nursing school I lived in the same town (5 minute drive). But then I moved at the end & it was 30-40 minutes. I knew people coming from the valley, which I believe is over an hour or more drive.
