  • Actually I am going back to college now and getting a degree in a totally different field. So yes, I most definitely would!

  • IDK, on the one hand I'm very happy with my special education moderate/intense k-12 because it makes me very versatile and there will always be a job, no matter what. But my true passion has always been to work with babies with severe special needs, which is why I'm getting my masters in Early Childhood special education. Sometimes I wonder if I should have done my undergrad in early childhood, and my grad in k-12, but then I realize there aren't many early childhood jobs anymore with all the cuts... So its a toss, I go back and forth. Either way eventually I will have both degrees, so I'll be able to obtain my dream job one day.

  • My Bachelors and my Masters degrees have nothing to do with eachother, does that count?

    Answer by ladymomtraveler at 11:52 PM on Feb. 4, 2011

  • Yes I would. My degree is in business. It's basically worthless. I'd definately choose something else.

  • No way! I'm currently studying to be a midwife, and I LOVE what I'm going into! I would do it for free if I could afford to!

  • No. I have my BSN and have been working in my field for 32 years.

  • I would have earned my BSN early on or perhaps earned my sonography license.
