I only work one day a week, but there are several students that do work full-time, but most of those students are military and have medical experience. The clinical hours differ for each class. Both fundamentals and med/surg I have 135 hours per semester. Keep in mind you won't start clinicals right away and the clinical placement isn't guaranteed so you may have to drive to Corpus. I'm in the BSN program (I already have a bachelors in accounting) but it's a 5 semester program consecutively do summers are included. Intense--very, hard--like nothing I've ever done. I thought accounting was hard at Tecas A&M in CS, but nursing is a whole new world, especially learning the critical thinking. So it can be done obviously but it is by no means easy. I live in CS, so I take my end of semester exams at Blinn. You basically need an institution that proctors exams. I'm in my 2nd semester and I'm really looking forward to it. The clinicals were amazing. I learned so much. Good luck to you!
