Making the choice to continue your education can be a very difficult decision to make. I had worked for Kellogg’s Company for 20 years and decided to go back to school to become a massage therapist and a registered nurse.

This decision took many months of planning, and several years to obtain that goal. Looking back at the experience, I don’t know how I did it. However, I did accomplish my goal and more. One of the greatest challenges I faced was time management, and the financial responsibilities of life, and paying for my education as I went to school. My suggestions to anyone planning on higher education would be to create a map of where you want to be at a certain time in life, and how you plan to get there. I would also suggest a contingency plan in the event your plans are altered.

Looking back at my nursing educational journey, I realized I could have utilized different resources to obtain my goal with less stress, and a better educational experience. One of my suggestions would be the Saunders Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RN Examination. I had waited until I graduated before I started using this book. Looking back, I should have used this book while I was preparing for each exam during school. As an affiliate marketer I wish to state I do receive a small commission for referring certain amazon products.  As an adjunct professor of nursing, I have seen many students benefit greatly from utilizing

One of the great advantages of eBooks’ is the read aloud feature. This allows you to listen while you are on the move. You can go for a walk, and educate yourself anywhere you go.
