I have been up and down about my major for awhile now. I have been taking healthcare related courses for the past 2 years. I love psychology, but have decided to try to get into the nursing program at my community college this coming fall.

I am going for RN - 1 more year of pre-nursing classes then 2 years of nursing. Loving being back in school!! 1st year was great - got 3.7 GPA 1st semester and 4.0 last semester -- it's challenging, but I am loving it. My teens all call me a nerd because I study so much - but I keep telling them that they should be too!! Good Luck Everyone!!

My degree (AAS) is in Office Management with specialties in Medical Transcription, Medical Billing, and Office Professional.

I have completed 2 years, however not always in this major so I can't use all the classes I have taken. However, I can use most of them.

I only attend half-time because of my disabilities, so it is a long haul.

I have a BA degree in English and just started school today to do the prerequisites to get into nursing school. I'm really nervous about Chemistry but was really encouraged today after my first class.

I'm majoring in Finance. Maybe I can save the world from economic downfalls. Ok, maybe not, but it sounds like a noble dream :o) emoticon

Really, though. My biggest accomplishment will be if I ever ever drop even ten pounds closer to my goal weight. Then I may see the light at the end of this health tunnel.

I have been going to college since Fall of 08 however when I first started I was majoring in Medical Office Specialist, and just changed my major for the semester I will be starting January 11th. I am looking forward to these classes so much. I am taking all my classes this semester online however in the Fall, I will be taking them mostly on campus.

My major is to get an Associates Degree in Nursing Science. Even though I already hold two Bachelor Degrees (one in Science and one in Psychology) I am now going for my Associates. You may ask why am I going backwards well the school that I am doing my distance learning through previously had a program in which the Licensed Practical Nurse could go for a Bachelors in Nursing Science and they ended up phasing out that program as they saw that the grades that the student's were getting were not exemplary on their nursing board exams and they felt that this program was too much of a hurdle for the LPN. I can still go for the Bachelors in Nursing Science but must first finish the Associates Degree.

I am not sure if I will pursue the Bachelors Degree as I turned 56 on July 29th and we are not getting any younger.

HOLLASTER31 - what a great career field. I love working in my garden; it is such a stress relief. We have a view of the back yard from our office windows and we love looking out at the changes we have made to our landscape over the past 6 years. We hope to get our backyard certified as a wild life habitat at some point.

MEROBACK - I may be turning to you for advice on my students!
