Is it possible to work night shift full time and complete dental hygiene school?

Hello everyone I majored in business administration and I am too far along to switch and will complete it just so I don’t feel like I wasted my life more than I already have. I have come to realize that I enjoy knowing my work can have a positive impact on others lives and looking to complete a second degree in dental hygiene. My same university offers this program and will take me approximately 3 years to complete I will be 24-25 when I finish. I would like to know if it possible to work night time positions such as a hotel night auditor/ grocery stocker positions in order to fund my degree as I will no longer have financial aid. My university also does not provide any afternoon or night time school options. Please give my any advice or share any stories about others who have worked while in dental hygiene school and it is possible or should I just give up and accept my circumstances.
