Nursing School here. I hope to get an advanced practice degree (NP, aka almost a doctor but not…it’s complicated) and work internationally on the Mercy Ships/Doctors without borders kinda thing. 

Edit: It’s actually a Bachelors of Science-Nursing and the next one is a master’s level, Family Nurse Practitioner

Hmm…I am graduating with a triple major in Broadcasting, Organizational Communication and Public Relations.  I am attending grad school for a Masters in Journalism this fall.  My goal is to teach at the university level.  Schools seem to be hiring candidates who can “pitch hit”, hence the multiple focuses.  If I need to work in the field for a while, I would probably pursue PR/media relations with a non-profit or university.

After this semester I will be ~24 credits from my BA in Anthropology (General concentration so Cultural) with a Minor in Museum Studies.

Anthropology will basically supplement an understanding of culture but my efforts have been into my minor. This fall I’m applying to Masters programs for Museum Studies/American Material Culture to eventually work in a museum as a Registrar/Collections Management/catch-all.

I have my bachelor’s of science in Nursing and I’m currently working on my Masters to become a family nurse practitioner. 🙂 I didn’t realize we had some nurses on this site!

I have a bachelor’s in accounting, and I’m finishing my MBA with a focus in accounting right now, graduating in August.  You can do all kinds of things with this education, supposedly, but my goal has always been to work for the federal government.  Ideally with secret service or FBI, but we’ll see.  I’m also considering going for a PhD in accounting and becoming a professor, there’s a huge demand right now.

I’m in my last semester of a 2 year nursing program.  I will graduate in May with my ASN (I will be an RN once I pass boards).  I’m planning on going back to school and completing my BSN online after I find a job, maybe starting before if it takes a while to find a job.  My ultimate goal is either an NP or PA.  I haven’t decided which yet.

Will be working towards Paramedic starting in September.  Hopefully by the time the 2 years are up I can find a job, cuz I sure can’t seem to get one right now as an EMT.
