Hello! I'm currently a high school teacher looking for a career change. I love interacting with and helping people so I'm leaning towards nursing. I've asked a few people about working through nursing school and everyone has told me it's impossible or not a good idea. A few told me that I could possibly work part-time. I know that I would have to quit teaching since that takes about 60-70 hours of my week. However, in the evenings, I was going to go back to waiting tables to get me through school. I already have a bachelors degree so it's looking to be about 15-18 more months in school to get a BSN. Not working isn't an option for me. I'm in my late 20s and single and have to pay my bills. Are there any nurses who worked full time through nursing school (accelerated or not). I hate to give up on this dream because I have to work through school. I worked full-time through my first degree but I know this is different. Thank you so much!
