Get a Head Start on Your Medical Career – Great Nursing Schools in Louisiana

Jan 30, 2018 by

Louisiana – or “The Boot” as it is known to its residents – is an excellent place to pursue a nursing career in the South.

The salaries for nurses in Louisiana are on average higher than those paid to nurses in the nearby states of Arkansas, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Alabama and a continuing shortage of adequately trained nursing professionals means that while other professions may be shrinking in terms of job opportunities nursing continues to grow.

The first step to becoming a nurse there is, of course, choosing between the many fine nursing schools in Louisiana.

Where are the Nursing Jobs in Louisiana?

For graduates of nursing schools in Louisiana, there are employment opportunities all over the state but they are most abundant in cities like   New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Shreveport. According to figures from the LA state government, …

Getting a Second Chance at Success – Obtaining a High School Equivalency Diploma

Jan 13, 2018 by

“You never finished high school?” is a question that many of those who never did get a high school diploma have to face every day.

Unfortunately, those that did not graduate with a high school diploma fall into the lowest income bracket, earning almost 50% less than a high school graduate usually having to take minimum wage jobs that offer little in the way of advancement opportunities. All is not lost though, as earning a high school equivalency diploma is easier and more affordable than ever.

How Do You Get a High School Equivalency Diploma?

A high school equivalency diploma – or GED as it is also still called though there are alternative options – is an opportunity that is available to anyone who wants to take the test. GED preparation can be done either online or in a physical …

Revisiting Proposition 54 – collecting racial information

Dec 29, 2017 by

Affirmative Action

Some years ago, a Supreme Court case involving an applicant who brought suit alleging that the admission policies of the University of Michigan were discriminatory renewed a heated national discussion on affirmative action, race-based preferences and the merit of diversity criteria in schools and workplaces.

While the Supreme Court’s decision upheld the use of race as a consideration in admissions, nuances of the article led to a revision of the University of Michigan Law School’s admissions policies.

On one hand, opponents of affirmative action argue that the Constitution is designed to protect individuals rather than groups; on the other, reformers point to the historical legacy of discrimination, slavery, and imperialism that has left many groups without equality of opportunity due to discriminatory practices that remain poignant in statistical measures of educational and economic success.…

Percentage of black students graduating in engineering is rising

Nov 6, 2017 by

The percentage of black college graduates majoring in engineering fields has increased from less than 2% to more than 12% in the past 30 years, a U.S. Department of Education report says.

The study compares transcript data of 22,000 to 30,000 students from each of three high school graduating classes — 1995, 2005, and 2015.

Blacks are the only ethnic group with a sustained increase in engineering majors, from 1.7% of the class of 1995 to 6.1% in the class of 2005 to 12.6% in 2015.

By comparison, 4.4% of Latinos in the class of 1995 went into engineering; that increased to 10.7% of the class of 2005 but dropped to 7.5% for 2015. Among Asians, 10.1% in the class of 1995 majored in engineering; that doubled to 20.2% in 2005 but dropped back to 10.8% for 2015.…

Standing Strong: Saying No to Shady Gigs

Jul 3, 2017 by

A few months ago a potential client made me with an offer. Now, as a freelance writer who spends an hour every morning browsing online job boards, I have to admit it was flattering to have a client approach me, rather than the other way around. The pay was good, and the workload, while certainly heavy, was manageable.

I turned them down.

Did I do this because I have so many clients I can pick and choose my gigs? Hardly. Am I financially well off? I wish I was — turning down this client made making rent difficult.

No, I turned them down because the client’s product violated my Three Big Don’ts.

Three Big Rules

When I started writing online, it quickly became apparent I’d be working for a wide variety of clients. One week I might be writing …

Jun 5, 2017 by

geek_smallInteracting with friends at lunch break, attending prom night, and moving over the school stage at the time of graduation isn’t something students would easily give up, but for a growing number of youngsters, the advantages of signing up for an internet high school are definitely worth it.

Writing Templates: Getting a Jump Start

Dec 8, 2016 by

Templates help structure writing tasks

“Dear Grandma, thank you for the T-shirt you got me on your trip to Alaska. I really like the funny picture of the grizzly bear on it, and red is my favorite color. I have been wearing my shirt to school and all my friends are asking when I went to Alaska! Thanks for remembering me on your vacation.”

Think about assisting a child who is writing a thank-you note. You might find yourself prompting the child on what a good thank-you note should include. In addition to thanking someone, the note should identify the gift, express appreciation for the gift, and perhaps comment on how the gift is being used. A conclusion usually recognizes the gift-giver for his or her thoughtfulness.

In other words, there is an internal structure of this specific communication – …

Phonics With Intermediate Readers

Nov 5, 2016 by

Intermediate children continue to develop their knowledge of how words work. They have a firm foundation in word patterns and how to take apart educationwords in both reading and writing. They have learned how to take words apart quickly and efficiently using word patterns such as –ink or –ight. They have also learned how to decode by analogy, but they need further instruction in three areas: prefixes and suffixes, less common letter combinations, and vocabulary development.

Prefixes and Suffixes

  • Children learn common prefixes such as un-, re-, dis-, and im-.
  • They also learn suffixes such as -ly, -ful, -tion, -sion, and -able.
  • Learning prefixes and suffixes helps children take apart multi-syllabic words and use the meaning of those parts to infer the meaning of an unknown word.
