Ordering viagra Ah, ordering viagra August is in the air and Brady Quinn is back on the field.
Ordering viagra This time in a Cleveland Browns uniform!
Ordering viagra Here in the Bay Area we are so sports oriented, ordering viagra it never occurred to me that I would not see the Browns on TV every week.
Ordering viagra Moving to Ohio was a little drastic, ordering viagra so I managed to get the NFL package online so I can at least listen to the games. Ordering viagra Brady is supposed to take some fourth-quarter snaps against the Lions this week.
Ordering viagra I’ve got to join the Bay Area Browns Backers to watch the games at a local club.
Ordering viagra I also own the jersey Brady is wearing in this pic – is that cool or what?
Ordering viagra I do love my football! Notre Dame starts in two weeks!!!
Ordering viagra It doesn’t get much better than this!
Ordering viagra (PS: Kasey Kahne qualified third in tomorrow’s NASCAR race!
Ordering viagra I am having one great weekend!)
On September 4th, ordering viagra I will be starting my second semester of classes toward my BSN. Ordering viagra My first semester experience was so positive that I chose to take ten units this time.
The online learning experience has been amazing. Ordering viagra I’m not sure I would have “gone back” for my degree if online education was not available. Ordering viagra I have been able to fit a top-notch education into my lifestyle instead of rearranging my life around a classroom.
It is not for everybody. Ordering viagra There are certain characteristics you have to have to make it successfully in an online class environment.
- Self-motivation – you’ve got to make yourself sit and do the work. Ordering viagra While there are deadlines, ordering viagra there are no classes to keep you motivated. Ordering viagra It has to come from within.
- Focus – you need to be able to block out your surroundings. Ordering viagra Online learning means studying at home (or, ordering viagra uh, ordering viagra at Starbucks) and if a sink full of dirty dishes or a pile of unfolded clothes (or Paul McCartney on the sound system) is going to distract you, ordering viagra this could be a problem. Ordering viagra “Well”, ordering viagra you think, ordering viagra “I’ll just do all my chores first.” Right. Ordering viagra Except the chores never end and often become a way to procrastinate.
- Work Experience – my personal opinion is “the more experience, ordering viagra the better”. Ordering viagra When I take these classes, ordering viagra I bring almost 30 years of nursing with me. Ordering viagra This helps me put the class material into perspective. Ordering viagra It is easier to learn and retain because I’ve “been there, ordering viagra done that, ordering viagra seen that”. Ordering viagra Last semester my classmates had anywhere from 5 to over 30 years of experience behind them before starting the program. Ordering viagra I firmly believe I would not have appreciated what I am learning now if I had done a BSN right out of high school.
Ordering viagra The university you choose to “attend” via online classes is very important. Ordering viagra I did not have to look far before choosing the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay. Ordering viagra Here’s what you want to look for in a program:
- Accreditation – you want to make sure that the program you are attending is accredited.
- Credit for previous degree/classes – find the program that will offer you the most credit for your previous experiences. Ordering viagra I had taken a lot of art history, ordering viagra English, ordering viagra paralegal and music classes for “fun” over the years. Ordering viagra Every single one of those classes was transferable to the degree, ordering viagra not to mention my Associate’s Degree counting for a large number of units.
- The ability to take non-major courses at a local college – online nursing programs are not cheap. Ordering viagra Many classes will be general education: English, ordering viagra humanities, ordering viagra math, ordering viagra statistics, ordering viagra etc. Ordering viagra You want a program that will give you credit if you take these classes at a local community college. Ordering viagra This will save you quite a bit of money.
- Local clinicals – having to travel to do the clinical component would have been a deal-breaker for me. Ordering viagra Find a program that allows you to arrange your community nursing/public health nursing clinicals in your own county/community.
Ordering viagra You don’t have to be a nurse for this to work for you.
Ordering viagra I do not advocate getting your initial nursing degree via the online route. Ordering viagra However, ordering viagra if you are thinking about nursing in the future but cannot attend classes now due to work or family responsibilities, ordering viagra you can take individual classes online from your local community college. Ordering viagra It’s a great way to start accumulating units toward the eventual degree. Ordering viagra Humanities electives work wonderfully online.
Ordering viagra Research the requirements of nursing programs you are interested in and start taking those general ed classes. Ordering viagra Whether you decide to go into nursing or not, ordering viagra they will come in handy for any degree.
Ordering viagra As for me, ordering viagra I am entirely comfortable going for my BSN online, ordering viagra but will attend a traditional program when it comes to getting my MSN. Ordering viagra If you already have your BSN, ordering viagra you may be comfortable with obtaining your MSN online. Ordering viagra I’ve heard there are now doctorate programs online, ordering viagra also.
Ordering viagra Better learning through technology.
Ordering viagra I’m all for it!

And no, ordering viagra they did not pay me to write that, ordering viagra but I am definitely paying them for a great education!
