Hey everyone! I’m in my early 30s, just had our 3rd little girl, but apparently that’s not chaotic enough for me because I’ve decided to go back to school (pray for me). After the amazing experience I had with the nurses during my last delivery, I decided that that’s what I want to do. I want to be an OB nurse in a hospital. I was hoping that someone could give me a general idea on how much schooling I would need, how much the total cost would be, and if I would be able to do any part of it online. Again, just looking for a general idea. I don’t expect anyone to have exact figures. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and thanks in advance to all responses!

I tried college in 2012 right after high school, but was dealing with undiagnosed ADHD and only got 1.5 years in before dropping out. I'm looking to go back and am looking at scholarships. My SAT's were pretty good (88th percentile for reading, 78th for math, and 52nd for writing), but they're from 2012, is that too long ago to matter?

I'm an adult that recently lost their job as online support. I found that I qualify for federal aid that will pay for additional schooling. I was applying for Western Governors University, however their records and financial department are unable to give an estimated program cost which the government requires. I'm looking for another program that provides both an IT degree as well as the certifications that the industry wants. Hoping some one out there may know of another program I can look into. Thanks

Hello, I don't know if this is the place for a post like this but I'm beginning to feel anxious and just want to feel like I'm heading in the right direction.

I recently graduated college, the whole of my education was done with the idea of working in the medical field. That being said I have already applied for a Radiological Technologist program, now it's just the waiting game. I have been looking into trying to get into Bone Densitometry, but I cannot for the life of me find a school or program near me, and the one I was able to find was in San Diego, and that turned out to be just a "Seminar" and not an actual program, and still cost $2200 to "enroll"

I live in California, bay area. and I feel like I'm running out of options for this program. I just want to start working in this field so that I can work in some area related to my profession of choice.

My questions to anyone here are: Does anyone know of a Bone Densitometry(DXA) program in the bay area that doesn't come off as super sketchy? Or are they all like that and is their purpose just to help you get ready for the certification exam?

I'm 32 years old, and I live in the Untied States. I was a straight-A student up through 6th grade, but, in middle school, I grew bored with the slow pace of even honors-level programs, and quit bothering to attend class or turn in assignments. I still aced every test I sat, including state standardized examinations, but tests only counted for 60% or less of one's grade. This pattern continued through high school, where I only attended my orchestra, creative writing, and philosophy electives with any regularity.

By my senior year, I was failing. The instructors and staff realized that I was bored, rather than stupid, and offered me the opportunity to make up my classwork online, in the computer lab, so I could graduate on time. I knocked out three years of remedial work in the required academic subjects in less than three months. Still, the make-up credits did not count toward raising my GPA, and I walked on graduation day with a 2.89, when I should have had a 3.8 or higher.

My family was struggling financially due to my dad's medical issues. I couldn't afford to take the SAT or the ACT. The gap year I took after high school turned out to be a gap decade, as my dad's condition worsened, and I took on the role of his caretaker. His condition began to improve - or so we thought - by my 26th birthday, and, after working out logistics with my boyfriend at that time, I enrolled in a community college that summer. My grades, however, were less than stellar due to my role at home, and, when my dad died after three semesters, I became so depressed that I had to drop out.

It has been almost six years, and I hate where I am in life. I want to go back to school, and finish my BA, at least. I will have to pay out of pocket to go back and re-take the classes I failed (or from which I had to withdraw), and the paycheck from my current retail gig isn't nearly enough to cover that, plus cover my living expenses. My credit is terrible, so student loans are out of the question. None of my surviving family members have the means to help me out.

Has anyone else been in a similar situation? How did you dig yourself out? Is there any hope? Any advice is appreciated.

Hello! I am trying to pursue a bachelors in Social Sciences. I’m currently enrolled in Ashford University. But I’m curious about other options.

Are there some good & affordable universities that offer classes online? I’m not familiar with any besides the University of Phoenix, which I heard is excellent.

This article is the result of a theoretical research and is part of a larger study under development in the doctorate program in Education of the State University Paulista Júlio de Mesquita Filho. It aims to understand the importance of aesthetic literacy for the development of reading and writing of young and adult students in rural education from readings and comic books productions. This study is based on Cultural-Historical theory and has as a method the Didactic-Formative Experiment. The data recording instruments used in the research are the field records of observations made in the classroom, the audio recording of interviews with the students, as well as visual records of the comic books produced by the students and classes recordings in videos. For data analysis, we will follow the perspective of Dialectical Historical Materialism. When considering reading and writing as social and cultural practices, literacy is fundamental in the educational process. In this sense, we understand that comic books are important instruments for the development of reading and writing of the young and adults of the rural education, allying text and image in the process of teaching and learning.
