Manage Your Time

Time management

If you’ve decided to go back to school for a degree, you may need a little help getting organized. Try these survival tips for juggling work, school and your personal life.

  • Choose Your Program Carefully

Many schools tailor programs to working professionals by offering evening and weekend classes. Some schools provide distance learning opportunities, which allow students to take courses via the Internet or by teleconferencing.

  • Keep Your Eyes on the Prize

Set a goal for completing the program, even if it’s a long-term goal. Always keep in mind that what you’re doing will open doors for you in the long run.

  • Think Ahead

Many employers encourage employees to attain degrees and will accommodate students’ schedules. If that’s the case, alert your employer to your class schedule as far in advance as possible.

  • Stay Organized

Make daily and weekly to-do lists, but don’t panic if unexpected problems arise and set you back. Keep work and school separate, even if your employer supports your efforts.

  • Don’t Neglect Yourself or Your Responsibilities

Keep your energy level high by eating well and exercising. Although sleep may seem like a sinful indulgence the week before a test, you can hurt yourself or your patients if you don’t get your rest.

  • Banish Guilt

Enjoy time with your loved ones rather than feeling guilty about the schoolwork you could be doing. Plan time for yourself that’s not related to school.

  • Take a Break If You Need One

Take a semester off if you’re overwhelmed, or reduce your courseload.

  • Study Anywhere, Anytime

Review your notes or course readings while waiting in lines. Tape-record lectures and listen to them when you’re driving.

  • Take Advantage of the Internet

Communicate with professors via email. Research projects online.
