  1. I am looking for some advice from those that may have had a similar experience. I have been in the military and worked for the government my entire life. I graduated last December, got licensed in February, but never took a job. Partly because of financial reasons (hefty pay cut), and also because I am now trying to finish my BSN. How much us this frowned upon and how hard might it be to land a job and adjust when the time comes?

    Clinicals and UTAs

    Hello, I am a new nursing student that will begin in the spring. My program is nights and weekends and requires 8.0 hours of clinicals a week right from the start. I work full time and I'm an Air Force Reservist as well. My question is: What can I do if I encounter any issues with my clinical rotations conflicting with my Reserve duty? I know I am allowed to reschedule only one UTA per quarter with prior coordination and approval. I'm just looking for advice on others' experiences with juggling work full time, school full time, as well as reserve commitments and how to go about this if my Unit is inflexible when it comes to allowing me to do clinicals that may interfere with UTA weekends.
