Need Educational Advice


  1. Hello there nurses. I have decided to go back to school and get my Masters. I have hopes of becoming a gerontological Clinical Nurse Specialist like a buddy of mine. Any advice on going to school part-time while working as much as you can to subsidize it (while still maintaining sanity and health). I'm single with no kids, so I think the timing's never gonna get any better. I am lookings at Canadian schools.
    I would appreciate any advice, THANKS!

    Gosh, single and with no kids,
    I hardly know how I managed, but I completed my masters while working full time with a husband and 2 children. I did 2 subjects/semester.
    Now, I think I was mad...

    Simon Fraser offers a masters program in Gerontology - http://www.harbour.sfu.ca/gero/intro.html

    The Gerontological Nursing Association of Ontario might have some info for you as well - http://www.easyhosting.com/~gna/

    There is the Canadian Gerontological Nursing Association as well, but I believe that you need membership to get into the site.

    I think that the University of Toronto, University of Waterloo, Queens University and York University all off Nursing Masters programs.
