Working and nursing school

How difficult is it to work during nursing school? Like how are clinicals, how many hours a week they are, etc? I know that each school is different when it comes to that. But I'm really scared that while in nursing school and working at the same time I won't have any time to study.

It all depends on your situation. The best case scenario is if you still live with your parents and you have no children. Then you should be fine. If you have children and a full-time job... it might prove to be very difficult. Not impossible, but difficult. The more commitments you have, the more a support system is important.

Hope this helps.
