I'm trying to get everything in order to (hopefully) enter the nursing program (ADN) and had a question about clinicals. At what point did you actually begin taking them and will it be possible to keep the job that I have now while completing them?? It's full time and the hours are set, 7:30-4:30 M-F. My hubby's trying to get me to quit when clinicals come around and just take on a part-time job but I'm a WORRIER and that idea makes me squeamish.
How are you guys/gals handling it??
Thanks a bunch!

I have an 8-5 type of job, and there's no way I'll be able to keep it when I start the nursing program this summer. Classes/clinicals for our program meet five days a week, from 8:00 am - at earliest 3:00 pm or as late as 5:00 pm - this is a BSN program, though, so I'm not sure if that makes a difference.
Lots of people work through nursing school - because they have to. It's doable, but definately not easy. Unless you absolutely have to work for financial reasons, I'd try to just do school full-time.
