There is a lot regarding going back to school for your PhD that I did not go through with my BSN or MSN.
It can be exhausting.
And then I listen to a webinar about a nurse who is newly retired and what she loves most about the operating room.
I wonder if I can reach out to her and have her reassure me monthly during this process.
I got an interview at one of the 2 universities that have a PhD program that I am interested in!
The university is an hour and a half away, and I am opting for a zoom interview so as not to waste gas.
The 2nd university I instructed to reach out to a 4th PhD nurse that I know because of volunteering with his organization.
He is willing to write the missing recommendation. I hope to hear more soon.
I don’t know about this place because the reviewer has glommed onto something completely normal.
In California, anyway.
He is looking at the transcript from the school where I got my ADN.
And noticed that the bottom says there are 5 UC (meaning University of California) credits.
And 52 CSU (California State University).
Means that of the 57 credit hours I took for my ADN.
That many would transfer to a higher level of school.
Because Napa Valley College is a community college.
At the time I did not conceive of writing textbooks.
In fact it took nearly 15 years for me to go back to school for my BSN.
I can understand the need to be choosey when it comes to candidates.
A PhD is, as was pointed out, a terminal degree.
Meaning there is no further degrees to get.
I hope I am doing the write thing.
Do you see what I did there?
