So, do you want to be a degree earner? In what field? When I took up Mass Communication degree in college, I felt like I was doing what was supposed to be the best for myself. I graduated from such degree in 3.5 years but until now, I haven't worked in the real world yet practicing that very profession I first finished 9 years ago. This time, I am a back-to-school mom trying to be a professional in the field of health care. Yes, I want to be a Nurse. A Registered Nurse at that!
Since I am already a mom now, it sometimes is discouraging when I think education is for my kids only and not for me anymore. That's because my kids are my priority now. However, I am wrong. Even if I am already a mom, nothing should hinder myself from achieving my heart's desire. Even if I am just home most of the times, there are distance learning degrees
that I can take up that will lead me to fulfilling my dream to become a Nurse. The other year, I was taking up Pre-nursing courses at the university. On my second semester, I took up online classes. It worked, and I am pretty much satisfied with the outcome. I am about to enroll again to continue fulfilling my dreams.
If you look at distancelearning.com, you will see that see that there are a whole lot of distance learning trades
and careers that one can choose from. There are degrees in the Arts & Humanities, Business, Computers, Criminal Justice, Education, Health and Medicine, Science and Engineering, and even Nursing. I believe in distance learning. I know several people who are products of distance studies and they are as professional as those who really have attended schools.
So, don't lock yourself up and get stuck from the four corners of your house. Be a productive person by choosing to study online when offline opportunities are a scarce.
