Online Courses - MOOCs

Oakwood University Indian studentsIf a high school student wants to get into a selective college, but doesn't have high grades, he or she may apply via a degree major that is less popular, or harder for the school to fill. If you stay true to your career interests, not just going after salary, your overall job earnings will increase over time as you gain experience. If you focus your degree choices on salary alone, there's greater risk that you'll suffer early signs of burnout, and be forced to change careers.

Get involved on campus. A big problem for students is a feeling of not quite belonging. There are organizations putting on some event almost every weekend. If you’re resourceful and keep abreast of the campus calendar, you can find amazing activities to participate in. For example, there are sports clubs, fitness classes, and movie nights every so often that you can go to. Also, visiting professors may give free lectures on interesting topics. Many university departments have special arrangements in place to assist students, such as offering the rental of laptops, cameras, projectors, and other equipment for projects.

If you’re having issues or feeling stressed about classes, most campuses offer free student counseling services. Try to focus on a few things rather than juggling too many obligations. Learn to say no when you have to. This can be difficult, but an important step in learning to set boundaries with others. Don't become a statistic, and be determined to graduate. Seek out an academic advisor, who will help you with course conflicts, and deciding on a major.
Top 10 reasons why students drop-out:

1. Partying, not enough studying.
2. Homesickness, feeling left out.
3. Academically unprepared.
4. Financial reasons.
5. Family issues.
6. Departmental concerns.
7. Choice of wrong major.
8. Lack of guidance.
9. Demands from employment.
10. Moving to new place.

Nursing & Medical Job Listings

Earning a CNA degree (Certified Nursing Assistant) is the first step towards becoming a fully-qualified nurse. Most CNA programs can be completed within a few months, allowing you to join the workforce quickly. The next step in a nursing career is to become a LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) or LVN ( Licensed Vocational Nurse). These are year-long programs, in which you'll work under an RN distributing meds, treating wounds, and providing basic patient care.

In order to become an RN (Registered Nurse), a bachelors degree in nursing is recommended. RN's command a greater salary, and are responsible for an enlarged scope of practice over LPNs and CNAs. Students will receive classroom instruction and clinical training in a hospital setting. A 4-year BSN program allows students to further specialize in the areas of pediatrics, geriatrics and mental health. After completing your nursing education, you must be licensed by the state in which you'll be practicing, given that state boards of nursing each have specific certification requirements.
