I just started nursing school
full time. This is my first semester. I am currently taking:
- Anatomy&Physiology 2
- Nursing129 (1st Nursing Course)
- Organic & Biological Chemistry
I have classes Monday-Friday. Monday's and Wednesdays classes are from 6pm-8:30pm. Tuesdays I have classes from 10:30am- 6:30pm. Thursdays and Fridays I have classes from 9am-11am. My schedule is all over the place due to the availability of classes (time slots.) I want to take as many classes as possible because I don't want to be in school forever! (I already have my bachelors in something other than nursing)
It has been so hard to find even a part time job with my crazy class hours. On top of this, I don't even know what my semester will be like in the spring, but I do
know that I will be taking my first clinical course. Does anyone have any type of advice on a job with flexible hours? It is hard to schedule work around school... and it seems like most people schedule school around work, but like I said school comes first because I am trying to finish ASAP. Even something just for the weekends? I am getting desperate! I already applied for a nurses aide job at a local hospital but they informed me I have to complete a 2 week orientation that is Monday-Friday 8-4pm which I can't do because of my current schedule. They said to call back at the end of November to see if they are having a winter orientation I can do once I am done with classes for the semester.
Every doctors office requires specific hours that I can't do either! Any advice on any types of jobs while in nursing school?
Thanks for any advice!
