Hi Zenman, Suzanne4, heartdrtobe,& CRNAsoon
Thank-you for responding.
Zenman, thank-you for your words of encouragement. It does give someone like me hope. I really do appreciate your insight here. I will just keep plugging away at it - that is all I can do. Marketing is my next course coming up (if I make it).
Suzanne4, - I will keep trying to practice. It is hard when this book only contains answers to some of the questions and other pertinent questions - it doesn't. Kind of hard to check figures.
But I'll keep fighting....
heartdrtobe - Well, you do have a legitimate point that medicine and accounting are two different languages. I do know of some people that are very accomplished in healthcare going for their MBA in this class with no background in accounting and this is a challenge for them too. I am not interested in a MS in teaching. Thanks for the suggestion anyways.
CRNAsoon, If I had to do this all over again - I would take a couple classes in accounting at an undergrad level and atleast one class that deals with Excel making spreadsheets and take your time with it. Accounting is really basic math - but knowing what numbers apply where can be frustrating - that is like 80-90% of the battle. I'm not sure if your 501 accounting class is the same - but if it is managerial accounting or something that pertains to "cost accounting" - at an MBA level - I would *think* that it is very comparable to what I am taking currently. BTW - I am also interested in obtaining a CRNA after this (someday).
