Working while in school

  1. I am starting an ASN program in Sept. and I am concerned about what I am going to do for income since I will have to quit my current job once I start classes. Anyone have any suggestions of what they did while in school?

    I work on the weekends as a CNA. Since I work on the weekends I get a good rate and I work 12 hr shifts. It is hard but it gives me money and they pay for school. Good luck

    Is your program full time? Or do you have the option of completing all prerequisite courses prior to starting the core nursing courses? That might make it a little easier on you if you continue to work.
    I'm starting BC3's RN program in the fall. However, I took all of my prerequisites first so I would only be left with the 8 credit nursing course each semester. With four kids, it was my only option.
    Good luck!
