    I'm about to start my second semester this week. My first semester I worked 36 hrs (fri-sun 12 hr shifts each) and took 9 credit hrs, nursing skills, assessment and foundation. I passed all check off on the first try and passed the semester with 2 As and 1 B oh and I'm also a mom two kids (6 and 3 yrs). I plan to work 36 hrs a week as much as possible this semester along with taking adult health with clinical, OB with clinical and pharm. it was not easy but I always kept my grades up and never missed or failed an assignment/exam. You can do anything you put your mind to just remember that you have to work hard and know that it's only for a little while. Good luck!

    To pull a heavy load at school and work you have to have it together. You have to be able to multi task, manage time efficiently, and maintain a family. Imagine what you'll be able to do when you graduate and you can focus you're time on a nursing career! Good luck to you as well, stay focused.

    I'm starting next Tuesday and I'm going to work a 48 as well every week... I'm a Firefighter/EMT-I any advice or suggestions?

    It depends on your services call volume... but no-sleep-24 or 48 into a 12 hour clinical is a BAD plan.
