I currently work as a CNA in a LTCF on the weekends. I only work 16 hours a week right now, but after I graduate, I'll be working 36-48 hours per week and go to school (General Education Classes thread...)

When will this be over?????????

I'm not working while going to school. I don't think I could keep up with everything if I worked. Bless those of you who do.

I work at a small rural hospital as a unit secretary. I work 40+ hours per week during the summer.

When school starts, I drop down to 32, the lowest I can go and still be able to pay my mortgage.

I wish I could work less, but I seem to do well in school because I know I don't have all the time other people do, so I can't procrastinate.

It works.

I am currently working 40 hours per week in an LTC dementia unit as an NAC. My pre-reqs I have been taking one class per quarter & still working full-time. Once I start the program, I will drop to part time (I hope!!) but I will have full-time daycare so I don't know......:rolleyes:

Currently, I work as a Dangerous Goods specialist for FedEx about 40 hours a week.

I just finished a Bachelor's in Political Science, and have decided to switch to nursing school, which my wife is starting with me this fall.

When school starts, I'll do the DG for 3 hours, 4 nights a week (12 hours), then work about 6 hours every saturday.

At my school, after 3 semesters, you can take the NCLEX-PN to become a LPN. When I do this, I would like to get a part-time job as a LPN and drop, or almost stop the work at FedEx while I'm doing my last two semesters at school to become a RN.
