I have been reading how much time attending dental school requires and I was just wondering if its possible to work part-time (maybe 10-20 hours per week). I will be graduating as a nurse next year (from an acc. BSN program), but I truly want to be a dentist someday. I know that after gaining some experience as a nurse, I could work per diem or do agency work part-time. To current/former dental students, I was wondering if its possible to work a shift or two on the weekends while in dental school. Dental school is expensive and I figured working would help me pay for the tuition (my fiance is a nurse and could take care of living expenses). Any replies would be appreciated. Thank you.
