    Man im getting tired. Working 40 hours to pay bills, 15 hours a week of class, and 16-20 hours of clinicals a week. This is killing me, but im learning a lot.

    Any tips to make time last longer or how to get through this? I got the lots of caffene part down.

    Just keep ingesting the caffeine and keep your eye on that light at the end of the tunnel. Despite what you may feel now, it's not a train! :joker:

    "Clinicals" good experience for the most part, Free labor for the hospitals L and D, ER, Surgury, And Dialysis departments. I had to do over 800 actual hours in my Basic, Intermediate, and Paramedic classes at Gadsten State Community College in Gadsten when Larry Godsten was still teaching. Ugh!hours sux and had to do a few 16 hour shifts to get them done in time.

    Clinicals, man I did 5p-5a or 6p-6a in the ER. Drove a jeep wrangler and never had a problem staying awake on the drive to my GF's, then I traded in the jeep on a Ford Ranger. Woke up as I ran off the road, scared the you know what out of me.
