Choices that prepared me for my online nursing classes, comment


I think the biggest hurdle I’ve encountered with the decision to obtain an online degree, is the time management. I have never been a master of my time to begin with and trying to juggle the children, a full time job and school – amongst the hundreds of other commitments we all have, has been quite a struggle for me. I envisioned putting the children to bed with plenty of free time at night to study on line. I now realize that 1000 at night is not necessarily the optimal time to read and retain learning material. I also wished I had taken in account how stressful it can become when your taking a timed exam and the kids are running in and out of the room while the incoming calls are knocking offline! (yes I live in one of the few areas in New York that still uses dial-up service) If any, an important lesson I have learned throughout this experience is to impart time management unto my children – that it is an essential skill needed not just in healthcare but in life in general.

Title: Choices that prepared me for my online nursing classes
We all made choices about the types of courses we wanted to take when we were in junior high school and high school. I went to high school long before the age of computers but know one course choice I made in 8th grade prepared me well for this class. No, it wasn’t a science class or a health class but instead it was a typing class. I cannot imagine doing the homework assignments if I couldn’t type fast. Thank you to my parents for encouraging me to take typing, I remember telling them, it was a waste of time and I wouldn’t need it as a nurse. I apologize to them both and thank them for guiding me well.
