[FONT=arial black]I am trying to enroll into Nursing school by the Spring Semester. I have a Bachelor's degree in Pshychology. I am currently taking my pre-requisites so that I am eligible for the program. I also work full time at a bank and have a 5 yr old daughter. Right now it seems that the only way to make it through nursing school is to work part time or not at all, neither of which is an option for financial reasons. I am not married so I survive on my income alone. I have read many articles about pursuing an education in nursing and working full time but I have found nothing that has helped me determine the right steps for my particualr situation. School websites and even advisors say that you can not work full time and attend nursing school.
Also, I would like some advice on how I can get my foot in the door in the medical environment. I get the impression that my current employer will not be very supportive once I've started the nursing program. I will need to find a new job as soon as possible. I have no previous medical experience and I would like to gain some before I begin the program. I am finding that you have to have experience in order to get experience. Any ideas?
I greatly apprecitae any advice that anyone can offer. Thank You
