    Unfinished business finished

    Got word from the instructor yesterday that the paper that I had written for my class was very good - meaning that I had passed the last course of my bachelors degree in nursing program.
    Boy Howdy!
    Flunked out of Indiana University at age 20, picked up an associates degree nursing at 35 and finally got around to "finishing school" at 60. (University of Indianapolis) (Not the oldest student in my class of RN's, either.)
    Wasn't too painful - my hospital paid for all but the books.
    I'm done with this school thing.........don't wanna be too knowledgeable..............

    If I had an old Alfa Romeo Spider, I wonder if I could transport a long wheelbase recumbent bike on it?

    I think the best quality in adult students is their appreciation of their professors and instructors, yes?

    Already I'm looking back nostalgically at my college days - hanging out at the malt shop.......drinking beer and spinning platters with the coeds.....

    Great job! I thought I took a long time (from 1963 to 1995) to get a math degree. I'm glad I did. It allowed me to increase my income and savings. Thanks to that, I'm going to be able to retire in January at age 65.

    Thanks to the state of our healthcare delivery system and nursing shortages in recent years, I've been able to do all right as an RN with a 2-yr degree.
    No automatic pay raise for a BSN but more opportunities.
    And, I am more distinguished. That might be the salt-and-pepper hair, of course.

    Looking at the Social Security website (http://www.ssa.gov/), it appears that more education doesn't translate to increased SS payments , so I'll just plan on working another decade or so. Gotta stay busy.

    Caring for others is a noble profession. Adults in education are different than the youth who are more inclined to be self absorbed. Your next visit is medical ethics.

    Cougars - Maybe I can talk my wife into putting on an old lady mask.
    Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey - Koo Koo ka choo Mrs. M..................

    Medical Ethics - I had the opportunity to take a philosophy/medical ethics class last Spring. Learned a few new words/concepts, including beneficence and non-maleficence. It's not a black-and-white world.
