  2. Poop Free Nursing Jobs in the Hospital?

    You're kidding right? What are you talking about? Many PA's actually take a Pre-med d-e-g-r-e-e program as their undergraduate degree so they knock two birds out with one stone. 1. The PA...

    1. Do not be mislead. The "minimum" requirement to take the NCLEX (2 year or 4year institution) absolutely does not include General Chemistry at many institutions, and never has. 2. The...

    You hit the nail squarely on the head. Some law schools have actually warned students about unrealistic expectations, but that isn't the job of schools. The job of the school is to prepare a...

  13. Why In The Heck Should I Be A Loyal Nurse?
    Don't be fooled. "bean counters" are very skilled at what they do, and becoming an actuary (passing all the associated exams) is something a relative few people on the planet can do.The bottom line...

    Seriously, you don't have to be a freaking genius to know that certain degrees are (practically) worthless, and others are viable in the real world. Do you rack up $130,900 in debt to major in...
