To start off, I have a REALLY high goal for myself for when I do get to nursing school: I want to graduate #1 in the class, however, I have a slight problem, I am going to have to work part time, probably 20-35 hours a week. I'm wondering if it will get in the way of that goal. I understand that it varies from person to person depending on how they study and how their brain takes in information, but I really want to know about how other people experienced it. How did you find time to study? How stressful was it? How are your grades?
