Mine is a transfer AS degree in Engineering. Don't have a job ATM, but I still have two more years. It really depends on what field your going in. Two year degrees wont always yield a job.

Quoting Squeaky McGee:" I got my AS in Nursing. I'm a RN. I work on a cardiac unit in a hospital."


I thought about that . I like child development so I could become a teacher but I know you need a bachelors for that and I just want to get an AA or AS since im already about to be 26. The nursing I like because you only need an AA but there are just so many requirements at my school to get into nursing and all classes are about 5 hrs long for one class, and since I have to pay rent I really dont have the time.

don't let your age stop you from getting an education or setting/making goals.

A lot of places requirea BS in Nursing. I got lucky. I'm about a year away from my BSN. I'm taking a break right now.

I'm working on my AA with my post-transfer major being elementary education.



Obviously, I intend and hope to work in an elementary school.

You can do it. You really have to be determined. I'm about to get into a BSN program. Its my first time being in school with children and I also plan to be working full time as well. I'm nervous but I'm not going to let that deter me. Check out the nursing schools in your area. If you need to take some core classes for prereqs, do them at an local community college. You have the option of doing them online and going in for tests/labs/classroom discussions. It will open up your schedule more, you know?



The community college I went to had its own medical campus as well. I did my prereqs online through the college. The nursing school also had the option to complete an accelerated nursing program. I didn't choose that path but definitely do your research.
