SuzyK how's school going?

  1. Hey Suzy, I was just thinking about that tonight. Are you still taking classes for the much coveted Masters? Are they good, what's happening?

    Hey Tracy,

    School is going well. I completed my first semester in May, and walked away with an A- average.

    Currently, I am taking a probability and statistics course on-line that is 15 weeks and ends in August - just in time to start classes again for fall term. I hate math, and while stats is interesting and applicable and I should know this, I hate it anyway.

    I am looking forward to starting again in fall; my classes will be Nursing Philosophy and and a theories course. After that will start courses for my first 3 chapters of my thesis.

    I love school -and there is so much to learn about nursing. So many theorists that weren't covered in undergrad! Even if I never directly use my Masters and become a professor, what I've learned from the classes will last a lifetime.

    I figure if nursing is obsolete anytime soon I will go back to school for a degree in Botany, and go around giving lectures about how to raise roses and hydrangeas.

    Anyway, thanks for asking! :kiss

    Susy K,
    Off the subject, but do you know how to get hydrangeas the color they are supposed to be. I know it has to do with soil PH. I have a blue one that is blooming white. Any suggestions??

    I am glad you're liking it. I never enjoyed math much either, but it is a necessary evil. Have you decided what you're going to write your thesis on? The idea of writing a thesis is one thing that will keep me away from most Masters programs! The one thing I hated about school was the papers....ICK!

    Anyways, congrats on the A- average and hope you keep enjoying it!

    Hey SusyK what is the name of that stats course that you are taking? Is it through the UW colleges? I hate stats, have taken it once and dropped it? It is the most evil of all nursing courses.

    I am taking an on-line stats course through Lakeland College. The on-line format isn't that bad, but the whole concept of stats is HORRIBLE! Arrgghh.

    As far as the hydrangeas they respond best to acidic soil. If your blooms are faded they need more acid. Some garden stores sell plant mix that makes the soil have a lower pH.

    Thanks Susy, I'll look around for stuff to lower the PH.
