So I attend college full-time, and normally my course load consists of 16-17 credits per semester. However, this year is going to be a little different since I plan on working part time as a CNA and I will also be commuting instead of living on campus. My commute is about 1.5 hours to AND and 1.5 hours back, so I figure that's going to take a pretty big chunk out of my day.
So I decided to lessen my workload and do 12 credits (which is still considered FT). My question is would this look bad on my transcript? Would nursing schools look down upon this?

People take different credits for different reasons. In the past I took max loads with my first bachelors...but this time I have only had 2-3 classes a semester. There is no reason it would be bad for your transcripts. Right now it works for me...but next year my girls will be riding the school bus together so I will be free to do the 15, 17, 18, 10 credit hour semesters!
