Have you ever considered going back to school? I know that I’ve thought about it, particularly now that I’m off work due to illness. I’m starting to think that I might need to consider changing careers if I want to keep working. Being an ER nurse and working continuous 12 hour shifts is difficult when you have a chronic illness. Actually, prior to becoming a nurse I was a jeweller and I did end up going back to school- for nursing – when a severe recession hit and dramatically affected my business. So, as someone who’s already changed the course of her career path, it’s not that difficult for me to think about doing it again.
I found a site online called Capella university and I think this might be a perfect way for someone like me, or perhaps someone with a full time job and family who can’t afford to take a few years off work in order to go back to school. Capella University offers online courses. Students of the University can study for graduate degree programs in fields such as business, education, information technology, human services and psychology. Capella also offers bachelors degree programs in information technology and business.
When I was reading information about Capella University I discovered that there are currently 16,000 students from all 50 states of the USA, and 63 countries, and that the University has been teaching students since 1993.
I think I’m going to look into the courses at Capella just in case I find out that I won’t be able to go back to my former job.
