    The Higher Education Bubble: Ready to Burst?

    I can't agree with you more. I see no problem in the idea that college isn't for everyone, because it ISN'T. Either you find a career that you are DRIVEN to be in and requires higher education, or you don't. Just because you don't doesn't mean you are any less capable. It just means that the drive and effort that you need to get through a program isn't there, and that's perfectly OK in my book. People just need to realize if they're that person. Also - I pay the bill for my classes. I have definitely found that it whipped my hind end into shape a lot quicker than my old party circle. I still see them, and I do still go out, but I don't do anything to the degree that they do. The only difference between all of us is that I'm paying for my classes, and I can't afford to miss a test because I have a hangover.
  2. Though I would definitely say a nursing student needs a strong stomach simply to get through CNA and nursing prereqs... 14 is young! I wanted to be a marine biologist when I was 14 and work at Sea World. Now I'm in a community college for nursing. Just some perspective. You never know what tomorrow brings. I know how annoying it gets to hear stuff like this, but there's no reason to choose your future at such a young age.
  3. I looked heavily into the difference between the offered BSN program in my area vs the communtiy college RN program and then RN-BSN at the university. The main difference was, at the time, the only nearby uni offering BSN also had a teaching hospital, which in my min obviously offers a better learning experience. However, I couldn't justify the money difference between the two. Overall, the education is about the same, and when I go the RN-to-BSN track I'll end up taking most of the same classes, save for a few basic englishes and maths that I've already taken with my RN classes. I don't agree that they aren't comparable. I find them to be very comparable. If you have to choose one over the other, you have to compare them. I spent quite a while doing that before I made my choice. I personally found that the MAJOR differences (teaching hospital asside) were lifestyle choices and budget.
