I’m getting an online degree, but I need your advice?

By | December 7, 2015

So, I tired to be the traditional student, but since my husband is military it just does not work out for me. I don’t want to be finishiing up my bachelor degree in 10 years from now. I am very interested in science, and very interested in medical stuff. I am thinking of either getting my masters degree in science and teaching college, or someday trying to get into optometry school, or even maybe medical school. Well, the degree I am getting is either in health science, or health wellness. I don’t really understand the difference of them both. Will getting an online degree in this be okay? I go to Kaplan which is fully accreditted, and is a good school. It’s not a diploma mill by any means. I’m kind of sad though because I would like to take a in person chemistry course, but I was thinking of going to the local community college to take a few science courses so that i get a little of that hands on experience. I have been in the classroom before though, so it’s not like I have NEVER been in there, but I just wanted to get a little reasurrance! lol. Do you think that is an okay plan?
yeah, i would rather go into the science part of it

    Definitely go to the community college for some courses, and online degrees are fine. Go into a science though, a girl I work with graduated with health wellness and cannot find a job anywhere (teaching or anything, they want P.E. too) look into the programs that the community college offers too – my community college offers a wonderful nursing program, and you might even be able to do a nursing assistant program in a short period of time.

    since its an online only school, some employeers will still look down upon a degree from them, especially with science degrees. you should go to a school that offers online programs but also has classes on campus. Kaplan is purely an online school and employeers know this.
