    I am currently in the program, finishing up the second half of med/surg at the moment. Your first semester and a half (depending on your transfer credits), you will be in class 8-5 for nursing courses, but gen ed courses can vary depending on when you register for them. Once you start clinicals, you drop labs, but clinicals can vary. MOST are 7 A -1 Ps, but there are 3 P-9 Ps. As far as a job goes, I would find a place that is VERY flexible. I am lucky because I just work at a retail job right now and have been weekends only since fundamentals started. One day a week currently with all the work required for med/surg. I also volunteer at a hospital on Tuesday mornings (possibly switching to Wednesdays soon). So my recommendation is doing something that will help you find a way to get a job when you graduate and one that is willing to work with your schedule at school.

    It's a lot of work, and I don't recommend over working yourself. School is way more important. They aren't flexible about work either. They will tell you that you shouldn't work, but obviously that doesn't work for everyone. I know people who do work full time, but many of them are struggling. It's really up to you.
