I'm the class pres for May '06 class.
In regards to your question, YES
it is possible to work and go to school. We have a variety of students in our program: some that work 30 hours a week and go to school; most have families (I have a 3 y.o.); some volunteer, work, and go to school.
It's really about you - your ability to manage your life, time, and stress. Like Silicone mentioned, they have a great advising session every semester to get you familiar with the process of applying, courses that you need to take, etc. I would definitely recommend attending one of those sessions. Also, Lynne Meyer is a pre-nursing advisor that can get you on the road. You can also take a look at www.ccccd.edu/nursing
to get an idea of what need to do.
If you have any more questions, let me know if I can be of further help. For those of you who are applying soon, good luck!!!
