The only reason to attend university is to learn to read, write, and think. These are the tools you need to be successful and independent. Any applied "skill" you learn will be antiquated the decade you graduate. If you want to train for a job, go to tech school.

Actually, a lot more nurses are getting nurse managers now. The amount of hospital administrators that were nurses is on the rise. Makes sense, as running a ward of nurses is pretty good operational experience for running a hospital.

Nursing has been on the rise for the past decade or so. It's very much in demand these days from what I hear.

I was being sarcastic, it's quite possibly the best degree as far as landing a job goes.

most 2 year colleges for nursing are exceptionally hard. It was like mental bootcamp for me. First 2 weeks of school had an exam covering 10 chapters, and this wasnt simple stuff. Then the real hard stuff happens. 6 hour clinicals 3 times a week, 4-6 hour classe days 4 times a week, exams all the time.... nursing school is very tough. Not doctor tough, but tough nevertheless. I finished a 2 year degree, and my patients lives are in my hands. I work with bsn prepared nurses, and I dont notice a difference. To be honest, I think clinically I was stronger starting off, while they had more theory based knowledge that was nice, but not clinical based. Ive been a nurse for 3 years, and make over 65000 a year

Community Colleges hold a lot of potential, but it depends on the student. This is especially true for someone looking to transfer get a bachelor's degree and not necessarily on in a specialized certification program. Some of your classmates may not be as serious about their education. If you can rise above the lowest common denominator, it is a great opportunity. If you cannot rise above the lowest common denominator, you should probably go the most rigorous school you can get into.

Poly Sci was a great major for me. It gave me a solid understanding of public policy, govt, and proved invaluable in talking with policy wonks and attorney and elected officials while interviewing them for stories. Plus, it makes it a lot easier to pick up on hot Environmental Science chicks.
