For me personally, I couldn't see myself working fulltime and going to school full time. Nursing school requires ALOT of studying and for me that would be too much. Not to say that you can't work at all, because I do work every weekend (20hrs). So if possibly work parttime or find a hospital who will pay you for going to school. Thats what I'm doing and its great, fulltime pay and I only work 2 days a week. Good luck to you!!
