Foreign Languages

The ability to speak a second, or third, language not only allows you to travel the world more easily, but looks great on your resume, and comes in handy at parties. Language study is both rewarding and challenging at the same time. If you note that a young child can pick up a new language in under four years just by watching and listening, think what you can do with concentrated, focused study. The Foreign Service Institute has developed a series of rapid-learning programs in various languages, and there are iTunes sound files that are available to download. Another excellent resource is YouTube, where video lessons (in every language) are posted from around the world.

Earning a CNA degree (Certified Nursing Assistant) is the first step towards becoming a fully-qualified nurse. Most CNA programs can be completed within a few months, allowing you to join the workforce quickly. The next step in a nursing career is to become a LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) or LVN ( Licensed Vocational Nurse). These are year-long programs, in which you'll work under an RN distributing meds, treating wounds, and providing basic patient care.

In order to become an RN (Registered Nurse), a bachelors degree in nursing is recommended. RN's command a greater salary, and are responsible for an enlarged scope of practice over LPNs and CNAs. Students will receive classroom instruction and clinical training in a hospital setting. A 4-year BSN program allows students to further specialize in the areas of pediatrics, geriatrics and mental health. After completing your nursing education, you must be licensed by the state in which you'll be practicing, given that state boards of nursing each have specific certification requirements.
