I am in(almost done with) my first semester of the LPN program.
I just started working nights at the nursing home in my town. Boy is it ever tough to work and go to school!!! I just hope that I can make it through to December 2002.
Anyways, any tricks or ideas on how to stay awake during those 3 hour lectures would be great. Luckily our instructors give us a coulple of breaks during class. Walking around and getting fresh air helps enormously!!!!!!!!
Oh yeah, on top of that i have two little girls at home. They are 2 and 4 years old.
To all of you that juggle more than just your school schedules, and that is probably all of us, Congratulations!

Traci, It's hard to not zzz off during classes when one has to work and go to school. We drink a lot of diet coke or pepsi. Some bring coffee candies. Working out a bit each morning helps.
