Alamance Community College spring semester calendarThe best college for a student is not necessarily the highest ranking in the Forbes or US News listings, but the college that offers a student the most career opportunities.

By taking some of your degree courses online, you may be able to graduate earlier, saving money on tuition, as well as entering the job market sooner. If you're currently employed, you can take online courses in your spare time to advance your present career.

US College Rankings:

The US News college ranking methodology has changed many times through the years, and is a trade secret. Best known for their 'Forbes 400' list of the richest people in America, the Forbes rankings have been getting a lot of attention for their list of America's Best Colleges. New college rankings aim to reflect a greater emphasis on student satisfaction, as well as recognizing academics. For critics of the US News & World Report college rankings, the new Forbes College Ratings seem to be more balanced, and include high rankings for many smaller colleges.

Although the cost of tuition has risen for most 4-year colleges and universities, community college remains an affordable option for those looking to earn an associates degree. The average community college student graduates with only a few thousand dollars in debt, compared to bachelors degree graduates. Further, if you're planning on transferring to a four-year program, you can save money for the first two years of your education by studying at a local community college, but still receive your bachelors degree from a well-known, four-year university.

Technical Degree Programs

Growing fields that you can major in include computer programming, health care, and business administration. As the economy recovers, companies tend to hire technical staff first. After several years in the workforce, graduates in certain fields can end up with higher lifetime earnings than students who have degrees from elite colleges. The key is to focus on your technical skill set and build a portfolio of your work. Candidates with prior industry experience are preferred by interviewers, but an applicant's past experience must be relevant to the particular job vacancy that the company needs to fill. Your resume must show a clear pattern of success over time, based on numeric results and personal achievements. Companies frequently publish rankings, offer various awards and incentives, and conduct monthly reviews of employee performance. Seek out a mentor with maturity and the connections to help you find the most direct path to advancement in your industry.

The main challenge in getting your degree is to choose a career that you will enjoy, and can pursue for many years. The job vacancies for website designers are still increasing, as retail firms move a greater percentage of their business online. Also, as the healthcare industry relies heavily on electronic medical records, protecting patients' personal data takes priority.

Nursing:

There is indeed a shortage of nurses, but please be aware that the education required is very challenging. Community colleges offer an Associate of Science degree in nursing, and some diploma programs also award certificates in practical nursing. Nurse training can take a long time to complete, based on your ability to learn, and whether you are able to attend nursing school full-time. Research various nursing degree programs that meet your requirements to become a nurse. The CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) is the first step in becoming a nurse. Most CNA programs can be completed within a few months, allowing you to begin working.

The next step in a typical nursing career after the CNA credential is to become a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) or Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN). A licensed practical nurse (either LPN or LVN) may provide basic patient care, but cannot administer medication, or provide intravenous therapy. 1-year nursing certificate programs train students to pass the licensing test to become LPNs or LVNs. Review your knowledge of anatomy on this page. After you begin work, the hospital or clinic that you are working for may offer tuition assistance to help attain an advanced degree. A 2-year associate's degree in nursing is generally considered the minimum educational requirement for RNs. These programs include basic courses in medical terminology, patient care and life sciences. An RN has to cope with more responsibility, and must oversee the work of LPNs and CNAs under their supervision. Please check with your state board of nursing for practical details and exams that you must pass to become board certified.

Online Course Listings

Given the need for students to cut costs, it's a good idea to browse the various online courses that you can take. Whether you're working full-time, or already a student at a regular degree program, you can take classes online that may complete requirements, especially in lower-level courses. Conversely, if you have trouble completing a particular subject, like organic chemistry or statistics, taking the class online can help you pass. You don't have to take notes because everything is recorded, and you can review videos as many times as you want to.
