I would really love to go back to school to become an LPN but is this possible while working a part-time job?

I am in my third term of a 16-month evening LPN program, and I work 24 hours a week (two 12-hour weekend shifts) as a nurse's aide. I also have two young children at home and carry a 4.0 GPA. Nearly all of us in my class work at least part-time, a few work full-time, and several of us have children (two ladies each have four kids and work while doing the program!). It is totally doable; it's not always fun or easy, but you do what you have to do. Quitting work for school was NOT an option for me. I think it's good to work at least a little while completing your program. You will have a better chance of getting a job when you graduate, and you will show employers that you have time-management skills. Good luck!

It's very possible.

I went to LPN school full time (8hrs/day 5 days a week), worked a full time job (40hrs) with two kids and a husband. And graduated in the top 5% of my class with a 3.91 GPA.

But its all dependant on the person doing it. I had some classmates who had no job, no responsibilities, lived home with no bills and they were barely passing, had others like me, who worked full time and passed with flying colors.
