Most people who know Mary White wonder when she has time to sleep. It’s a fair question given her schedule.
The 28-year-old spends her Mondays and Tuesdays in class or studying for her nursing program at Mount Wachusett Community College in Gardner, Mass. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, White has eight-hour clinical days and studies when she can find the time. She also picks up at least three 10-hour overnight shifts a week at a group home for psychiatric patients.
Add to that taking care of her four-year-old son and it’s hard to see where White finds any spare hours in the day.
