Online Nurse Degree Allows Woman to Help Her Father and Herself
Online degrees are the answer to the demand for more education in today's busy world. In an era when people are faced with more pressures on their time than ever before, many feel they can't take the time out and complete an education
For Nina Baker, an online degree in nursing is exactly what this nurse-to-be ordered. With a father to take care of at home, her schooling has come in handy when planning his day-to-day care.
"I was so thrilled to be able to immediately put what I learned from my online nursing classes to use with my father!" gushed Nina enthusiastically. "With each new class session, I am able to learn practical tips and techniques that I use to complement the care I already give him."
Nina also paid homage to the fact that the curriculum that is offered by her online school has truly cemented her life long dream to be a nurse. With her remote location in the plains of Wyoming, however, Nina doubted she would ever be able to actually realize her dream. As the sole care provider for her invalid father, she thought becoming a nurse was destined to be only a pipe dream for her.
Because Nina is able to complete all her course work online, though, this format allows her to schedule her day around her other responsibilities. Like many other online courses, she has deadlines that must be met in order to make satisfactory progress in her classes. As long as she meets those deadlines that are set by her professor or her college, though, Nina is free to set up her own schedule in order to maximize her time.
"Taking these nursing classes online has actually brought my father and I closer together," Nina confided. "I spend a lot of my time sitting in his room reading to him from my various college textbooks. He gives me great advice about how all the techniques outlined in the books would work in practical usage."
With graduation from her online nursing program a mere few credits away, Nina is excited about the possibilities that will open up for her. Because nurses continue to be a high demand profession, she will likely be able to find a job almost anywhere she chooses. She sees her education as a way of opening up doors for her father as well.
