How to handle a very busy 6 months regarding school and work?

I am wondering if anyone has any tips on how I can handle a very busy semester, I am a nursing student. I am looking to stay sane!! I am going to be in school just over full time, 13 credit hours, and I have two jobs. One is part time and one is PRN. They are related to my major group home care with MR/DD, and an aide in a local Childrens Hospital, I love my jobs so it wont be AS bad. I know I am going to be so busy and I tend to burn out fairly easy. This needs to be a great semester becuase, lord knows al these classes are KEY for my program. Please offer up ANY advice you have on how I can handle no time, tiredness, and massive amounts of stress :). Thank You!
