Mmm, if I take the GREs *next week* and get the transcripts and the application and the financial aid papers and whatever all else together, I can start the University of Central Florida in the spring, and good lord willing and the creek don't rise, I'll have an MSN with a focus on nursing education by summer 2007. Or, I can do an even more expensive online Master's with the University of Phoenix, which has the interesting advantage of being a degree in Integrative Health, which means Alternative Therapies and suchlike fun things. The disadvantage is that it's online... when you go to traditional classes, you make contacts, and I can't imagine a better way to break into nursing education than to get to know all the faculty and staff at a nursing school. Like, I could conceivably come out of it with a job, and I like the idea of that very much.
But I promised myself I wouldn't yammer on about it. It's nice to have long range goals, let's leave it at that. Now I just have to figure out the short term stuff. Ha.
For all the science geeks on my flist, I offer this important bit of research: Fun with Grapes -- A Case Study. Now I have to run to the store. What? No reason.
