Working and going to school?

Posted

Has anyone tried working in another healthcare related field while attending any of the BSN programs in Louisiana. I am curious because the school that I would like to attend only offers day classes, and I am a single mom so I am wondering what shift I should pick out of 2-10/3-11 and 10-6/11-7?

It's different every semester while in school. Some semesters I was in nursing school it would have been easy to work 30 hours a week but other semesters I wouldn't have been able to squeeze 10 hours out of my schedule to work. You just have to gauge it yourself. Ask people who are in your program which semesters were the most difficult, time consuming etc. I'm at Southeastern so if that's where you're headed you can certainly pm me and ask any questions.
