I will be a nursing student this upcoming spring 2014 semester and was wondering is working while in school a good idea. I know some people who have to because of kids and stuff but for those of you who don't how are you surviving?? Are you living off of scholarships and loans? If you do work do you recommend working somewhere that isn't as stressful like a smoothie king or something? I just want to know my options although I don't mind working, I just want to know if its possible to not have to work. I want to be as successful in school as possible but don't want to overwhelm myself as well. All comments and suggestions are appreciated!!!
