I agree Mustangsheba...times have changed! I went to nursing school year round. It was expected that we work as nursing assistants too. I worked full time all the way through nursing school and it certainly helped prepare me for the rigors of nursing care as an RN. Even though I lived at the beach, I had few real breaks. It was worth it in the end.
