I work full-time, have 2 boys ages 4,6, and go to PN class fulltime. LEt me tell you it is not easy. I had to change my work schedule and now am trying to get adjusted to it.
My schedule is like:
Sunday 7a-7p work
Monday school 8am-12pm
Tuesday work 7a-3pm boys have t-ball from 5:30-7:30 practice
Thursday school 1pm-2:30 pm some t-ball games, switches between thur/fri
Friday school 9am-12pm, then work 3pm-11:30pm
Saturday morning clinicals at acute-care from 7am-1pm, then go to work at 7pm-11:30pm.
Let me tell you it is very hard, cause I have meals to school, childrens homework in the afternoon, t-ball, and whatever else comes up.
WHEN THEY SAY NURSING SCHOOL IS YOUR "JEALOUS MISTRESS" THEY ARE NOT LYING....
when October 24 gets here and we flip to Tuesday clinicals 7-1 at hospital, then I have to rearrange my work schedule again, since I am weekend opt. I now work Friday, and Saturday from 7pm to 7am and 2 nights a week 11pm to 3am. Until I go to OB, then I have 4 wks of clinical rotation and have to change it again.
BUT HEY I HAVE TO Work and I HAVE TO go to school. YOu got to prioritize things.
Hope this helps,
