Find a Part-Time Job

If you can swing it, a part-time job can be a life-saver in college. While it is helpful to find a job in your field, it might be easier to find a “traditional” part-time job, such as waiting tables or being an peer academic adviser. While it’s great to find a job that pays the bills, don’t forget to look for a position you might actually enjoy. If you can find a part-time job in the health care industry, even better! Here are some great part-time jobs for nursing students:

Home Health Aide. Most home health aides can dictate their own hours, so you can work around your class schedule. A position as a home health aide will also give you direct experience in the nursing field and allow you to work directly with patients. Be advised, previous experience may be required for a position in home health.

Certified Nurse’s Aide. CNAs work under LPNs and RNs, assisting with daily tasks such as taking vital signs and caring for patients. This is a great place to start your career in nursing. Be advised, CNAs are certified and previous experience may be required.

Assisted Living Caregiver. Working in an assisted living facility or respite home is both challenging and rewarding. You will gain experience interacting with those in need, but you will also be in constant demand – changing sheets, giving baths, and taking vitals. Be ready for a thorough background check and have good references at hand.

Peer Advisor. Many colleges hire academic peer advisers who help other students choose classes, manage their workload, and plan for graduation. If you excel in one area and like working with others, this may be the job for you. Not only will you be making money, you will also show your interest in helping others and in your area of expertise.

Babysitter. Don’t want to deal with a “real” paycheck? Try starting your own babysitting outfit. You can make you own hours, have fun with kids, and make some tax-free money at the same time. If you are thinking about a career in pediatrics, this is a great place to learn if you really want to work with children.

    Is there anywhere I could sell used textbooks for this field?My daughter was in nursing school and I was wondering if she could get some of the money she invested in the textbooks.Isn't there a buyback textbooks program?

    One of my friends has chosen an online masters psychology. Maybe this could be a viable option for people who want to be nurses and don't have the time to actually go to college. An online college is always an option and popularity has increased lately for online studies.

    I am in need of help! I am an Illinois resident and an LPN for 19 years. I have all my prereqs completed for a transition program to RN at my local college. Now I find out I have to wait a few years to even get in it because of the extremely high amount of enrolles that have occured since I began my prereqs... I have done alot of my own research to figure out what is happening to us LPNs who desire to get our RN degree... It is almost impossible!!! I am really upset with this state of Illinois. I have contacted local law makers and even springfield. NO HELP!!!! The state of Illinois will not even let LPNs go thru a NLN approved online RN program... I have begun to look outside the state of Iliinois for schools. Any one out there that has the same problem? I dont give up easily and ready to team up with others to pursue a way to make LPN's have equal rights of getting into an RN program!!!!! Casey

    Peg, I returned to school last year, 24 years after my first bachelor's degree. I was 41. You will find that the life experiences we have had will help you a lot. I was fearful that I would not remember how to study...I was way wrong. I can study well and I found study groups to be very helpful. Good luck and stay determined. You will be fine!
