Good for you.  I'm glad you've got it covered.  When I went to school, yea those many years ago, the transmission fell out of my old clunker on the way home from clinical.  I had many of my classmates offer me rides until I was able to purchase a different old clunker from the junk yard where I got the last one!

Glad to know I'm not the only one who has these issues, thank you!

Yay.

One of life's little speed bumps negotiated successfully.

Best wishes on your last months of school and a long happy nurse life.

Great that the classmate was able to help. I don't know how far you live from your clinical site but having uber/lyft on stand by in case a ride falls through might be a good backup.

You got this! Do what you have to do get this done! 

Best of luck to you! 

15 years ago when I was in nursing school (with 3 babies at home) I bartended until 2am and was at clinicals at 6am. My gas and milk money depended on tips. 

It was tuff- but worth it!

I'm glad you were able to secure a ride from a fellow student. I take it you don't live in an area with a robust public transportation system?  You'll most likely need to get another working car at some point if not, but at least now you have  a little time before you need to worry about that.

I'll definitely make my clinical instructors aware of this if none of my classmates are willing to give me a ride, thanks!

I strongly recommend discussing this concern with your clinical instructor even though you found a fellow classmate willing to give you a ride. I’m glad you were able to make arrangements.

It may seem silly to discuss it with your instructor, but if anything were to happen ( example the person giving you a ride is late or does not attend a clinical) your instructor has already been aware of the issue and what measures you have taken. Your instructor may even have different suggestions to help arrange rides.
