Many many nurses have done this to get through school. Plus being in the hospital environment for work will allow you to learn a ton, and help you to be MUCH better prepared for clinicals, and the real world when you get out of school.
Because they didn't have to pay an RN wage they always had plenty of hours available to work as well.
I would ask about programs similar to this. Prior to working in hospitals I worked at WalMart. Was hired at age 16, and worked part time through my Freshman year of college, and the experience of dealing with people and conflict (as a service desk person) and seeing how crazy the world was, also was a great preparer for working as a nurse. So you having been in retail already will help you more than you know.
You already know a smile, and friendly hello helps go a long way.
