    These new nursing degree courses give students the choice between completing a single-field course in 3 years and a dual-field course in 4 years.

    The single-field nursing degree course can be completed in the child, adult or mental health fields of practice. Whereas the dual-field nursing degree course can either be completed in the adult and mental health, or adult and child fields of practice.

    These new nursing degree programmes are leading the way in training and were designed to prepare nurses to lead discovery through research-based training and creating change through innovation.

    The BN nursing degree curriculum at the University of Southampton was highly rated by the NMC on several points, in particular the Southampton values-based model’ which emphasises the vital importance of intelligent, compassionate and sensitive care.

    Southampton nursing degree students are made to focus on their attitudes, beliefs, values and professionalism from the outset, to ensure that patients receive the high quality care they deserve.

    Key characteristics of the BN nursing degree programme include: an emphasis on research based learning, the development of graduate attributes, grading of practice, and the joined-up inter-professional approach to shared learning between nurses, midwives and their physiotherapy, occupational therapy and podiatry colleagues.

    The University of Southampton also offers an MN masters degree in nursing: this graduate entry programme will enable students to become highly competent, knowledgeable and skilful practitioners, who are able to provide the highest quality care in their chosen field.

    Many former University of Southampton students are now in senior positions in the NHS and other healthcare organisations. In 2009, 93% of the University of Southamptons Health Sciences graduates found work or enrolled in further study.

    It is possible to learn more about nursing degree courses at the University of Southampton by visiting the Health Sciences web-site at www.southampton.ac.uk/healthsciences/

    Home Schooling has been garnering more and more interest and support from many parents who are looking for educational alternatives that they can give to their kids. Home schooling is an educational method that makes use of the home as the primary educational base for children. The system involves children being taught or educated at home rather than at an institution such as public or private schools.

    In the past, most children are taught their ABC’s at home in the absence of adequate schools in some areas. But with the advent of compulsory school attendance in the 19th century, education worldwide is earned through the traditional school approach. In today’s terms, home schooling or home education refer to the instruction done in the home with the supervision of government-regulated correspondence schools.

    Is home schooling effective? Most people tend to believe so. Many experts think that home schooling can be an effective learning tool because it practices a more personalized form of education. In home schooling, it is usually the parent’s responsibility to teach the kids their lesson. And this type of learning environment has helped many children absorb more of what they are being taught.

    And the great results have substantiated proof. Some home school statistics show that a number of home school students scored as many as thirty percentile points higher than national public school averages. Some experts don’t even see statistical differences in terms of academic achievement between home school students taught by parents with less formal education and those students being taught by parents that have acquired higher formal education.

    There are other positive home schooling statistics available that will help prove that such a method of educating children is just as effective. In 2003, the NHERI or National Home Education Research Institute conducted an extensive survey of over 7,300 home-schooled adults in the US with over 5000 of them being part of the survey for over seven years. The findings of the said survey indicated that more home-schooled adults are more active and involved in their respective communities.

    Most of them are also more likely to get involved in civic affairs and have higher voting population percentages than their counterparts. In terms of outlook, almost three fourths of home schooled adults feel more positive and find life exciting as compared to less than half for the general population. Half of the home schooled adults report that they are very happy with their lives.

    These statistics have shown that home schooling can have a great effect on how a child will learn. Home education can be just as effective and efficient as having your children taught in traditional institutions. Home schooling just carries a big advantage over these educational institutions in the sense that this method can make parents and their kids find time together. If you are looking forward to getting closer with your own kids and more active when it comes to their schooling, then home education for your kids should be considered.

    Getting an education after high school is becoming more and more expensive. But it is also becoming more and more of a necessity to get a good job that pays well and has adequate benefits. For this, most young people need to attend college or some other type of additional training. Most of them cant afford to pay for their education by themselves and end up looking for financial help of some kind.

    Student loans are a popular choice, but federal student loans are based on financial need, and some students do not fit into those guidelines. An alternative choice for these students or their parents is a private student loan. These are loans done through private lenders instead of the government. The advantage of these types of direct student loans is that they have many of the same kinds of benefits as federal loans.

    These loans can be used for any and all college expenses. Things like tuition, books, supplies, computers, and living expenses are all things that qualify for private student loan funds. These loans are unsecured, meaning that no collateral is needed. The loans are credit-based instead. This can mean that the student might need a co-signer if they have not established a credit history, or their parents can apply for the loan instead.

    A private education loan is usually a low-interest loan. Borrowers can shop around to find the best rate. There are generally no application fees to apply for this type of loan and there are also no deadlines for applying. The money can be delivered in as little as five days, and the money is given to the student instead of the school. The student is then responsible for paying for their various educational expenses.

    This kind of loan has other advantages similar to federal loans. The interest and principal payments can be deferred until the student graduates from school. For most of these loans, a student is required to be attending school at least half time for the deferral of payments and interest.

    When the student does graduate from college, the loans can usually be deferred for six months until the student finds employment, and then the loan holder will generally have a variety of repayment options available so that the student can tailor their payments to their income.

    A private student loan is the ideal answer for students who do not meet federal requirements for financial need or whose educational expenses are not fully covered by their federal financial aid. Many lenders offer private student loans to students or their parents and the application process is simple and free. The loan requirements are usually less stringent and the repayment options are affordable for young professionals. A private student loan is a great way to finance the education of any student that needs financial help.

    America is known as the land of immigrants. People from around the globe have traveled across the seas to live on this land of opportunities. It is a diversified country with a rich mix culture from the different races. Among all the different communities in this country the most discriminated race is that of African Americans.
    Now the slavery and racism have vanished from the Society but the past oppression have resulted in lower opportunities for African Americans. To give them the opportunities they deserve there are special trusts which give African American Scholarships so they can avail of the necessary financial aid.
    They are now entering the reputed professions like Medicine, Engineering, Mathematics, Business but the percentage is still negligible. For them to be noticed in these fields they still need to be in very large numbers. Even though United States made a history by electing their first African American President, there are still many of them who do not have resources even for basic education. To help them there are special African American scholarships.
    African American Scholarships are more important than any other minority scholarships because although it may be easy for others to obtain student loans it becomes difficult at times for African American students to obtain loans. This is not because of any racial discrimination but because of the lifestyle most of them are living in.
    Many children are victims of their parents ruining their credit. This makes difficult for able, deserving and honest students to obtain loan. The good news is there are many organizations which work for the betterment of the African American population and give them the opportunity to succeed in life. These organizations do have African American Scholarships programs.
    The United Negro College Fund helps African Americans to get educated. They give African American scholarships and financial aid by directly giving the funds to the 39 historically black colleges. Their main sponsors are Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Bank of America. Then there is The National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women’s clubs which gives scholarships for African American women.
    There is one more scholarship institution which gives African American Scholarships to the students who wish to study Science or Technology. It is the Development Fund for Black Students in Science and Technology. Then there are still many more which you can find out through search engines. All what you need to do is study and get a degree!

    This years annual conference sponsored by Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) and Advancing Hispanic Excellence in Technology, Engineering, Math and Science (AHETEMS) will bring together educators, students, and leaders in government and industry. The purpose of this summit is to advance scientific and technical education, career paths, and life goals for a variety of Hispanic and Latino students across the United States.

    The annual conference held by SHPE and AHETEMS will be in Cincinnati, Ohio, October 27-31, 2010, at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza and the Duke Energy Convention Center. The conference will include a Deans Summit, an Educators Forum and ample opportunities for undergraduate, graduate and high school students to learn about scholarships and internships to advance their learning opportunities and professional growth in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

    In the “Rising Above the Gathering Storm” report, the National Science Board (NSB) raised concerns about statistical data that indicates a “troubling decline” in the number of U.S. citizens who are studying and training to become scientists and engineers. The NSB projections show that the number of jobs requiring STEM skills is growing at more than four times the rate of the U.S. labor force as a whole. To complicate matters, the present workforce employed with federal agencies that focus on scientific professions is readying for retirement. In 2010 alone, 71% of the U.S. governments permanent employees in STEM fields will be eligible for retirement and 40% are expected to exercise this option.

    Since a huge number of professionals in the STEM fields are due to retire, high profile government agencies are interested in properly preparing bright and motivated students for successful STEM careers. The foundation for a successful career begins in high school, college, and graduate school. At this time especially, the opportunity is ripe for organizations such as SHPE and AHETEMS to provide the necessary funding and mentoring to improve career opportunities in high paying fields for Hispanic and Latino students. Over thirty years of working to advance Hispanic and Latino students opportunities has shown those who are traditionally underrepresented in these lucrative and well-respected professions flourish when financial, study, and career opportunities are introduced.

    This annual conference is a unique opportunity for Hispanic and Latino high school students who are focused on careers in technological fields to see what college is all about, prepare for SATs, learn how to write effective essays, and obtain a wider view of the jobs available in the technical fields. High profile government agencies, such as NASA and the Department of Energy, participate in this conference. Representatives from these and other agencies and companies attend this conference to speak directly to students aspiring to work in scientific and technical fields and study at colleges and universities across the United States.

    Homeschooling can sometimes inadvertently deprive children of necessary socializing. Get in touch with the school district in your area to see if your child can participate in sports or other activities offered by the school. This allows them to both build a great education and strong social skills.

    Ensure that you are firm when it comes to your child completing homework. It is a bad idea to let things fall by the wayside just because instruction is occurring in the home. Let your children know the importance of their schoolwork.

    Think carefully about the place in your home where you will carry out homeschooling. Keep the area in a place with the least amount of distractions possible.

    As discussion continue into the potential citywide school bus strike throughout NYC, parents are already beginning to consider their options when it comes to getting their child from A B should the worst case scenario unfold. With a dispute concerning new yellow bus contracts for special education pupils at the root of the matter, as many 152,000 local school children could find themselves without viable transport in the event of a strike. So where should families be looking for relevant alternatives?

    An NYC Limo: Providing an Affordable and Reliable Service to Families

    As strange as it may seem, the New York limousine service may well fit the bill for concerned families. Rather than being the overtly luxurious or expensive mode of transportation that it once was, limousine travel has evolved into something that is as practical as it is affordable. Clearly expenditure and value for money are key concerns for parent in the current economic climate, but this can not come at the expense of a childs punctuality when it comes to attending school. Limousine travel addresses both of these concerns head on, and provides parents with a unique opportunity to improve their childs experience at school.

    Starting with cost, hiring a limousine is not the budget busting expenditure that you may think. As limousine services have expanded into new and diverse fields, so too the average cost has been reduced to entice consumers and reflect the presence of new revenue streams. In addition to this, the diverse nature of limousine vehicles ensures that larger cars can be hired to courier large groups of children, so that the total cost can subsequently be shared between different families, parents and guardians.

    Getting Your Children to School on Time Every Single Day

    In terms of practicality, there are few vehicles that offer the same level of benefits as a New York Limousine. To begin with, they can be booked and paid for advance by parents, so that children can rest assured that their vehicle will be with them well ahead of time to courier them to school. Similarly, the courteousness and professionalism of NYC limo drivers guarantees that not only will your children be cared for and treated well during their time in the vehicle, but that they are also in the presence of an experienced driver will an excellent knowledge of the local roads and area.

    So regardless of the preconceived notions and old fashioned attitudes that cloud the NYC limousine industry, its evolution ensures that it is now a viable option for families who are seeking an alternative mode of transportation in the event of a school bus strike. So forget everything that you think you know about limousine travel in NYC, and consider how professional service providers could ease your worries in times of difficulty.

    When students ignore the importance of study skills because “we’re never going to use this in real life,” I tell them about the time I was programming a video game for fun. Early in college, I was working on a video game where a boulder would fly out of a stick figure’s hand when you hit the space bar (by boulder I mean large circle). The arrow keys pointed the stick figure’s arm in different directions (by arm I mean straight line). The problem was if you pressed any arrow key too long the arm would extend out forever. So I needed to enter in a formula that would tell the computer it was OK to spin the arm around and not OK for the arm to reach out into infinity.

    I ended up using the Pythagorean Theorem to solve the problem. (Just in case you don’t remember, it’s the formula used to calculate the legs of a right triangle.) Then it hit me, “Crap, I actually used the Pythagorean Theorem in real life.”

    Then another realization hit me, “Writing in ancient PASCAL programming language to make large circles appear out of a straight line on my monitor isn’t real life. It’s probably the furthest thing from it.” Which continues to beg the question, if you really are never going to use a lot of what you learn in school anywhere in your life, ever, why spend all that time with it? Most students spend years on the Pythagorean Theorem. How come? What’s the reason why?

    Well, let’s compare all that time a student works with that theorem with lifting weights. When you lift weights, you end up developing your muscles. Though it’s not likely you’re going to have to use those exact weights daily to survive (unless you’re a trainer or physical therapist). In the same way, working with theorems help you develop mental muscles. Though it’s not likely you’re going to have to use those exact theorems daily to survive (unless you’re a math teacher). Instead of working with solid weights to build physical muscle, you are working with abstract ideas to build mental muscle. The classroom is the gym for your mind.

    No doubt studying is work just like going to the gym is work. We need strong reasons why to continue doing the work. People who physically work out generally don’t want t be seen as unattractive, fat, and lazy. People who work on their study skills generally don’t want to be seen as stupid, incompetent, and lazy. They don’t want to be the dumbest person in a group. They don’t want to be taken advantage of. They don’t want to be broke. They want others to willingly listen to and follow them. They want others to be attracted to them. They want to be successful in whatever they do. They want to be able to invest their money and make more of it. They understand developing study skills can help them become who they want to be.
