“Now that I’ve been a paramedic for three years, I want to continue to advance my knowledge and abilities to continue providing an even higher level of patient care. In addition, as a paramedic, I’ve reached the top skill level as a pre-hospital provider. Getting a degree in nursing opens up a whole new world of possibilities as far as furthering my education and giving me options for my future,” Katharine Jackson said.
Finding The College Network was a quick and easy process for Katharine, and she hopes that others find the program as easily as she did. “I heard through the grapevine that there was an all-online program through which I could pursue an associate’s degree, so I typed “online paramedic to RN” into Google and was taken right to The College Network. Now that I’m enrolled in the program, I make sure to tell anyone who will listen about it because when I found out about it, my only disappointment was that I hadn’t found out about it sooner,” she said.
Katharine definitely doesn’t regret her decision to join The College Network and expand her career opportunities. “Enrolling in this program has been the best decision I’ve made for myself and my family. In this economy everyone is feeling the financial squeeze, and when things are looking bad, I can remember that I’ve done the best thing I can to secure my family’s financial future. This definitely helps motivate me to keep working toward my goal and to do my best in every class so I’m prepared to pass the NCLEX and get started in my new career,” she said.
