Completing your second bachelor’s degree is a big decision that will affect various aspects of your life during nursing school. For many people in our accelerated nursing program in New York, going back to school means giving up a full-time income. However, if you’re like some Utica College nursing students, your circumstances might dictate working a handful of hours a week on a part-time or freelance basis. That’s why we created this list of 4 websites that will help you find flexible work in Central New York:
Care.com is a great option for those who wish to work on a per-hire basis. This website connects babysitters, nannies, pet-sitters, senior care providers, housekeepers and other freelancers with people who are in need of their services. Care.com allows you to upload your resume and submit days and times of availability that you are able to work. You may also view employer profiles and contact them if you’re interested in a job they have listed. The website has grown in popularity since its launch in 2007 and now has more than 8 million users in 16 countries.
Note: Remember that over the course of our 16-month program, your schedule will change from semester to semester to accommodate simulation lab practice, proctored exams and clinical rotations, so if you must work, you’ll want to be upfront with employers that your availability will vary.
