Jobs while studying Nursing

Posted

I have a BA Degree in Social Sciences Major in Social Anthropology - Minor in Political Science. What are the possible jobs that I can get into to help me pay my nursing classes? Can I work in the hospital? If so, what jobs are suited for me?

Thank you.

Do I have to attend training or classes to be a CNA? How much will it cost me?

Yup. My program required 90 hours of training and it cost roughly 1100. But this varies, based on your location.

Did you finish it in a month or more than? Can I take CNA classes while waiting for my green card?

After taking CNA training, what did you do? Did you take BSN/ADN?

I finished it in 2 weeks, but I had class monday-friday for basically the whole day. Once again this depends on your location and the type of program you find. Not sure about the second question, but I dont see why not?

I will be in New Jersey. Where are you from? So are you taking nursing classes now?

Im also from NJ. Im halfway done with the nursing program. 2 more semesters and im done.

Is it BSN? Where are you taking your classes? Around how much are your expenses? Any tips on how to pay for the entire program without having to be in debt with a huge amount of money.

This is hearsay... but i heard that after the first semester of nursing you can work as a CNA, after the second or third semester you can work as an LVN. of course not with exact licenses but the position in willing facilities. Not sure how valid this is. But i will definitely be looking into it myself.

No. Not in NJ.

I work in a library part-time in the evenings (classes haven't started yet, but it'll be M-Thur. 7:30-3:30) so I'll work evenings and weekends at the library.

Some hospitals allow you to work as a patient care tech (PCT) once you've completed the Essentials of Nursing Practice (or whatever it's called at your school). It's basically being a CNA, but the position is reserved for nursing students. Hours aren't guaranteed, and you do a variety of jobs in all areas of the hospital. I'd ask at the educational office at local hospitals. I'm in Georgia, where it pays ~$12/hr, but about a decade ago, a friend did it in Texas and earned around $15/hr.

Where are you from? Are you taking nursing as a second degree? When will your classes start?

I live in Little Rock, Arkansas. Most public libraries are very flexible with schedules. Nursing will be my only degree. Classes start for me July 5th.

Did your friend worked as a PCT full time while taking nursing classes?

How much for an hour? Let me know how it goes when classes start. Thank you so much, CoryReece :)
