I'm going to start nursing school in January, and I'm excited but sooooo nervous. I'm nervous about doing something so new, and worrying about passing each test. I've been a home daycare provider for the last 2 years and make pretty decent money for living in SC (approx $600-$700 every week). Anyway, I'm quitting daycare to go to Nursing school and will get the max Federal Student Loan available which will give me around $10K for the year. It's not enough for us to get by on, we'll need to get help from our parents unfortunately. I thought about get a personal loan, and I'm a bit too scared to do that because that will rack up a pretty big debt after school! So I thought maybe I could try and do some babysitting as needed. I do have a CNA license good for another 2 years (just renewed it), but I don't think working as a CNA will be as flexible for me or as stress free. With babysitting I can still be in my home or there's and bring books with me to study if needed. *I'm sure many of you work while in school, so where do you work, how many hours a week, and if you don't mind saying... how much do you make? Thanks so much!!
