Hi. I saw your post in the general student forum, but then lost it in the flood of help with homwork posts.
I go to SAC (in San Antonio). I am a third semester student, currently in OB.
I wanted to warn you to be flexible about the "evening classes" part. Because of the number of students, and the limited number of clinical instructors and competition for clinical sites (currently 7 nursing programs
[LVN, LVN to RN, and RN] programs functioning in San Antonio), you need to be as flexible as possible in your scheduling. I have been switched multiple times from classes (sections and times) I was registered for into another section that may be on a completely different date and time. This flex, I was to have evening clinicals Monday and Tuesday (according to the schedule) but apparently, unknown to everyone including the registrars office, there is NO 2 day clinicals in OB, they are ALL full day clinicals held on Tuesdays. Someone should tell the people creating the registration bulletins :icon_roll (yeah, that wll happen). During Mental Health, my clinical was changed 3 times before the class was started ultimately ending up with a message to show up on campus at 7 am on the day clinicals were supposed to start and we would have an instructor and clinical site assigned at that time.
You will also have clinical check offs that will need to be performed on campus during the day as well, the only time that the lab is open.
Soooo, moral of the story is, make sure you have a very flexible work schedule and boss(though by med surg 2 you will want to quit your job anyway), have child care lined up, and back up child care. During your Orientation day Ms. Sweet will tell you to take pictures of your kids and kiss your pets good-bye, but it's not that bad. Your instructors will be sympathetic to your personal "interferring phenomenae", but it is up to you to get your work done and be there when you need to be there. They hear sob stories every day from students that have some personal drama, but they have one priority, get us through the program and passing the Nclex.
