So I'm wondering how important is it for me to keep my RN job while in NP school? Financially, I will be OK if I live incredibly cheaply and take out a few loans, I have 1.5 yr left in the program (the program is 2.5 yrs total).
My biggest concern is whether it will affect my future career opportunities as a FNP if I quit my job at the hospital now. I'm a floor nurse at a neuro rehab facility so it's not completely relevant, but will it look bad on my resume if I don't practice as a RN for the remainder of my schooling? And if that will make it more difficult for me to get an NP job after graduation.
I go to school full time and for the past year I've been working weekends, but lately staffing has been absolutely awful at work and school/clinicals is becoming more time consuming.
Please tell me what you think!
