    Girl you are crazy to work that many hrs while in nursing school lol. Majority of nursing schools recommend that you dont work at all but if you do, no more than 16-20 hrs a week. I know people that worked 40 hrs a week and went to nursing school but barely did that good but you will find out once you start and keep us updated lol
    LMAOOO! I'm going to die!!!

    What do you mean, "you are going to die?"

    Maybe this would be a great time to save up your money till you are accepted into a nursing program, then you can quit working for awhile till you can see what you can handle as a nursing student.

    I don't think anyone would recommend it. I'm sure it's possible but do you want to stress yourself out that bad?? Nursing school is tough with a LOT of work, and clinicals. I have bills to pay as I'm sure you do too if you're wanting to work 60 hours a week. I just cut my hours from 24/week to 20. I'll still make it okay on the bills part, but then again my total bills a month is 600. But personally I would recommend you cut your hours in half.

    How do you pay your bills if you only work twice a month? I have some bills as well and I don't have much support. Being unemployed will definitely not be tolerated in my home. I want to give nursing school my all.
    I saved my money before I started, and with financial aid and a school loan, not yo happy about needing the loan but I only borrow enough to complete my monthly expenses after I add I'm my saving and financial aid, barely have enough money for rent, bills, and living expenses but it's a sacrifice I'm making, I'll br done in May! so prioritize your life, I know I'm only broke for this period, but I expect to stary earning an RN'S wage by fall.
    right now I'm on winter break, I have 3 more weeks before I go back to school, so I'm working my butt off and saving all my pennies so I can continue to work one day every other week or less once school starts. Hope allow goes well

    Yeah, bad idea. I worked 40 hours a week my first year, and that was barely manageable. I had to stop my last year of school and only worked 20-ish hours a week.
