To work or not to work

  1. For those of you who have graduated...

    Did any of you find that not working while in school made it more difficult for you to find a job upon graduation?? I'm in school full-time with a 6 & 7 yr. hubby is in the Navy so he's always gone...working proved to be too much...I need to save all my babysitting favors for days that I'm in clinicals late!

    I am an LVN but have only worked in Psych. When I graduate with my ADN in June, I don't want to continue in that area. We are moving right after graduation to a new state so I can't even network during preceptorship in Apr/May.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the encouragement. Just trying to stay on top of things. I feel like I have overcome so much to get to this point. I don't want to lose momentum or faith!!!

    I've already contacted the state we'll be moving to and I received their info. so I'll be able to take the NCLEX there.

    Thanks again!
