I'm currently taking 15 credits and working 17 hours/week. I'm taking Lifespan Psychology, Medical Terminology, Statistics, and Modern Dance.
I'm wondering how many other pre-nursing students are working while attending school full time? How many hours do you work and how many credits/classes are you taking? Do you have any other commitments/extra curriculars?
Besides work and school, I volunteer once a week at an elementary school for 45 minutes. I also partake in my school's modern dance club, which tacks on around 1-2 hours of rehearsal per week. I have 2 dogs, so that adds in time commitments for walks, feeding, taking out to potty, ect. Along with the above commitments, I'm currently administering my father's estate, which takes up time when I can fit it into my schedule.
I'd love to hear coping techniques for feeling overwhelmed, because that's definitely something I struggle with.
