What is the most likely thing you will regret? For many, it's the past relationships they've had, missed opportunities, or pals they haven't seen in a long time.
It is possible that all of these are correct, but the truth may surprise you. Many regret not getting an education, according to research by the Islamabad Medical and Dental College Campaign.
Do you know what's holding you back from completing your degree? In this article, we'll dispel some prevalent misconceptions about earning a Post RN-BSN degree and offer suggestions for how to overcome them.
Myth 1: My college credits are too old to be of any use
Maybe you've been to college previously, but it's been a while. So, your credits must be expired now, right? No way.
You may be able to earn college credits for past coursework. You may also be able to use your Post RN or BSN experience toward your degree. The best approach to find out is to contact your college's admissions office.
Myth 2: It's too late
Finishing your Post RN-BSN degree is never too late. And you'll be in excellent company if you decide to start later in life. More than 40% of today's students are adults who are pursuing a 2- or 4-year degree as an adult. And, like you, many are working professionals.
A degree might also aid with employment stability. Studies suggest that higher education increases employment and retention.
Myth 3: It’s overpriced
The cost of obtaining a degree can be high, but it doesn't have to be! A nursing degree may be paid for in many different ways; all you have to do is choose one that works for you and your financial situation. A wide range of funding options is available to students who meet the eligibility requirements. Check with Islamabad Medical and Dental College (IDMC) financial assistance office to find out. A representative from the admissions office or financial aid office at the approved college or university where you plan to enroll can assist you with the application process.
Credit-by-Exam is another possibility after you've discussed these possibilities with your college. Credit-by-Exam allows you to skip a class and avoid paying for it entirely by having you take an exam in its place. As a result, you avoid paying for a college education and instead opt for exam preparation and Achieve Test Prep.
Myth 4: I feel like a failure because of this
A previous degree attempt may have ended in failure for you. Your journey to a degree may involve ups and downs, just like everything else in life. What matters the most is that you maintain your momentum and never give up. For those who began their college education at a younger age and didn't finish, returning later in life may give them an advantage. If you want to go the distance, you need more than just a little experience; you need a lot of it. Additionally, you've discovered what works and what doesn't work for you, as well as the kind of assistance you need to achieve.
What's keeping you from getting started? Relinquish your remorse and go on. It's your turn now. Take the next step in your career by obtaining your Post RN-BSN at IDMC.
