  1. Lee University in TN is moving up the ladder. Any reviews? 1) What is the campus culture like? 2) Mission trip opportunities? 3) Networking opportunities for medical careers, ie: nursing, NP or PA job shadowing? 4) % admitted to post-grad degree programs, like med school? 5) How rigorous is the Nursing program? I did like their service emphasis with community volunteering as a requirement. That was new to us.
  2. Yes, we thought that they do expert tours also. And, yes, you have to ignore the construction. Now, all other college visits are compared to LU. If scholarships are readily available, it would be an option. Ds will apply, then we'll see what scholarships he gets.
  3. Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but my son attended a "Worldview seminar" this past summer hosted by Summit Ministries. My son came home saying that the seminar changed his life. They also have a high school curriculum . I am personally acquiring the book list from this Christian Worldview organization in order to further my personal studies. These programs would be cultural studies which debate today's issues from a Christian worldview specifically.
  4. As a BSN working in the hospital setting for the past 29 yrs, I would agree with the bolded. In fact, my son is contemplating a medical career. I found myself discouraging him from pursuing a career as a Medical Doctor for exactly this reason. He would spend years of his life training to be a critical thinker, only to have it taken away by a medical board at an insurance company dictating treatment protocols and medication regimens. Unfortunately, no matter how much you love your MD, if your insurance co. does not pay for the medicine, you will probably follow the treatment plan or medication that your insurance will pay for. Son does not know yet what he wants. We are trying to figure out what would be the most versatile degree, with minimal years in study, and least debt. He surprised me in saying that he may want to be a nurse. I see him maybe starting as a BSN, and then moving into other science fields from there, as he chooses. At least he can work his way thru post-grad education. Unfortunately, the medical field is in love with higher degrees. I'm hoping this is just a phase...
  5. When the kids were babies/toddlers, I was guilty of leaving the cart a few times. I was concerned for their safety, and did not want to leae them, if I couldn't park close to the cart corral. However, I DID try to ensure that the cart would not roll easily.
  6. Have not read all replies, but this is what I have researched. I have a son also interested in medical field, and have debated the same question. NP requires a BS of Nursing first, then further education to the Master's level currently. However, there are rumblings that this degree will soon require a PhD to practice. A NP can practice independently. Approach to illness may be more wholistic in scope. One benefit is that can practice as an RN first, then decide to further education while working. PA would follow a similar course of study as a pre-medical student, more of a pathophysiological approach to illness, diagnosing symptoms, etc. Practices under the license of an MD, so cannot set up an independent practice.
  7. I probably can't even phrase this properly, but here goes... We are celebrating our fur-baby's one year anniversary with us. What is it about having a dog in your life which makes all the crazy, busy, hectic, stress seem not quite so bad? It is intangible, but how does this furry, wet-nosed creature, who can be found sleeping on son's bed most days, bring such calm to our lives? And ain't it grand to watch your children just love the thing? I had so many misgivings about getting a rescue, but they have ALL been laid to rest. Just do it... it is worth it! This rescued dog, with TLC and a bit of training, has become an immeasureable source of joy to our family. Would love to see your dog, or hear how your dog helps you too...!
  8. We used these books, which were then scheduled in the WinterPromise Quest for R & R program: The 100 Most Important Events in Christian History by A. Kenneth Curtis Christian History Made Easy: 13 Weeks to a Better Understanding of Church History and added the History Lives series by Mindy & Brandon Winthrow
