Distance learning has changed not only my life, but also my family’s life. Without distance learning I could have never gone back to school to pursue first, my Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and now my Master’s in Nursing Administration. Because of distance learning I am able to provide a comfortable life for my family. I work full time and live in a rural area of Kentucky. Distance learning was the only option for me to be able to pursue my career goals. The ease and flexibility of online classes took the stress out of managing my many obligations of work, school, and family. I have enjoyed learning from other student’s perspectives through the discussion boards. The sense of accomplishment I have gained from my education is indescribable. My advice to anyone considering online education is to stop thinking about it and get started.
