Graduate Degree

May 10th, 2008 at 04:03 pm

I have been going back and forward with this decision. I have decided to pursue my graduate degree in health care management/education to increase my salary potential. I would use my military educational benefits to pay for the degree. My DH and sons are 100% behind me with this goal. This would aid me to finding a better employment position.

I am a little apprehensive about the immense amount of time this would involve especially with a full time job. I feel good about this decision but a little guilty about the time it would take from my family. The 2 year program starts in January 2009 which involves one weekend a month with a part time internship at a hospital. I can accomplish this goal with a lot of family support, running and coffee! Yeah me!!

    Do it! I can definitely encourage you to do so as I'm working full-time in health care and also purshing my graduate degree in health care management. Unfortunately, I'm not getting my degree paid for by someone else, but even so it's still been a wonderful decision for me. It would be even moreso if my employer paid for my return to school.

    My program is every other weekend a month. I'll be graduating in December. It's getting busy for me now, but I still enjoy it and I've learned so much not just from the instructors but from my classmates. Many of my classmates already work in health care and give valuable information that I'm sure to carry with me into my own career. Good luck!
