What is your end career goal?

I want to be a PA. Once I graduate in May, I want to get a job working within the social service field and then apply for the master's program for PA. The program I want to enter is very competitive, so I may have to apply a few years in a row to finally get in.

I want to be a nurse practitioner. Possibly get my doctorate and then teach college level nurses as well. I'm not even a nurse yet, so I have many many years to go until I get there, but I'm excited!

meadowcroft14 - are you applying for Duke? Me, too!


It's really tough to get into. I think I'll apply to several programs, Duke would be my first choice but I'm not prepared to wait years to get in there.

I want to be a neonatal or women's health nurse practitioner. I want my doctorate too so I'll probably end up teaching or doing research or something.

I don't know what I want to be when I grow up...BUT it has something to do with the elderly.  I'm finishing up my bach in Psych with a minor in Gerontology and then I will apply for a Gerontology and Law Masters program...I want a Phd, but right now I can only handle thinking about being in school for a MA.  Right now i'm working in Social Services for the 60+ population and I love it!

Oh, I didn't even know they had programs there.


PA = Pathologists' Assistant, right?


I thought there were only 9 programs in country.

LOL I guess maybe we're talking about different careers.

Well my undergrad degrees are in Journalism and English but that didn't work out so well in the real world trying to find a job so I just started graduate school to get my Masters in Communicative Disorders to become a Speech Language Pathologist.  It will take a while though because I have to do a year of prerequisites before the 2 year program.

I'm majoring in journalism and minoring in political science. I hope to become an editor-in-chief one day. Right now I am editing and reporting for a local paper that is ranked in the top 10 nationally.

I'm getting my Master's to be a school psychologist. We'll see if I end up going for my PHD. In the mean time, I'm teaching dance classes.
