4 Tips to Get Into Nursing School

e19If you hope to sign up to a nursing program, you want to have at least preexisting knowledge of some of the basics, such as CPR. This emergency procedure is often listed as part of the admission criteria, and shows that you have a willingness to learn and commit to this profession. Here are four things to consider in the process of getting into nursing school:

Volunteer work or community service

By applying for volunteer work or community service it is possible to give a great first impression when it comes to enrolling in a teaching school and when you are reviewed by the admission committee. Any form of community service involvement is viewed in a very positive manner, especially when it relates to BSN level. It is possible to connect with a local hospital via one of their volunteer coordinators. Also, it benefits to stick with a single position and not change roles on a regular basis. The reason for this is the ability to get a reference that comes from someone you have worked with for a while.

Nursing, The Noble As Well As Lucrative Career

e18A nurse takes care of their patient just like a mother takes care of her child. Shielding them from anything harmful and taking care of every activity performed by the patient and regarding the patient, so that they become healthy. They also administer the medicines regularly to their patients as well as help the doctor treat the patient successfully. He/she is the one who comes running in case of any emergency in a hospital even before the doctor does and attends the patient wholeheartedly till they recover.

The profession of nurse is a very noble one. The patients trust them with their lives and are dependent on them while they are striving to get better. Each and everything from what to eat, to what to wear, which medicine is to be administered and at what time should a patient be sponged and to when a test sample is to be taken, everything falls under the dominion of the concerned nurse. Anything and everything a doctor suggests, is implemented by the nurse only.

He/she is the point of contact for the patient and his/her family, any problem

7 Common Problems Students Face During University Life

e17Starting university is like starting a new life. When students leave home for university, they embark on a new journey, one that of self-reliance and self-discovery, which largely shapes up their outlook on life in the longer run.

Most students are not prepared for the challenges of university and end up being overwhelmed, which results in them taking extra time to adjust to their new life. That is fine, as long as you eventually get comfortable with university life, but a far better course of action would be to prepare yourself, mentally and emotionally, for any problem you may face at college and university level.

Here are a few issues you should be ready to deal with as a university student.

1. Adjustment to New Life

Whether you are a student experiencing the campus environment for the first time or going back to the campus life after spending the vacation at home, there will be a period of adjustment, more so in the first scenario.

The first year of university is always extra hard when it comes to adjustment to university life so you should be expecting to at

Make Text Messaging a Part of Your College Recruitment Strategy

e15Summer after graduation can be a particularly stressful and confusing time for high school graduates. Going to college seems like the next logical step but there are a lot of decisions to be made, including selecting which college to attend.

Fortunately, there are text messaging services students can opt-in that makes the entire process less overwhelming.

It’s important for universities to deliver value first as unsolicited text might seem invasive to some students and discourage them to apply. Read-worthy content helps to create awareness and increase engagement, which will ultimately be useful when the time comes for the students to choose.

Students’ opting-in to text messages is a clear indication of their interest in a certain university. However, it’s possible that they have also signed up with other programs elsewhere. Still, this creates an opportunity for colleges to develop better strategies to reach the student population and encourage incoming college students to choose them.

By using SMS platforms, colleges can send messages that thank students for their interest upon subscription. Furthermore, these messages can be programmed to send replies that address subscribers by their first name, making it

Understanding The Education System Of The Best Medical Universities

There are several Universities offering medical education world-wide. But the fact is that, students are finding those Universities which can provide them a valuable education at reasonable cost.

Enhance Your Law Career Through Specialization

e13In the changing world of the legal profession, studying at a good law school and passing a bar exam alone is not considered sufficient. Majority of the times, the practicing lawyers are required to have specialty areas when representing clients in civil and criminal court. Legal specialization has a direct, positive impact on advocates’ competence. The specialist lawyers demonstrate high level of proficiency in their practice area. This way they stay on the leading edge of their profession, and improve their quality of legal service to the public.

The law graduates’ area of practice and career path is often-a-times determined by the first job they take. Either it will be that they are satisfied with the legal practice area they are working in, or they dislike it. While they are in a law college, most of them are focused on performing well and showcasing their accomplishments to score the best placements through campus. During that time, the only concern the students have is to find the best fit in the industry.

As a formal legal education is mandatory before the candidates get entry into practice, the

Difference Between MBA and PGDM


What do MBA and PGDM stand for? MBA (Master of Business Administration) is a degree, while PGDM (Post Graduate Diploma in Management) is a diploma program. As per the norms of the UGC, Colleges/Institutes affiliated to a university can offer MBA degrees. The autonomous/private Business Schools which are not affiliated to any university can offer the Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) programs.

Hence, even apex institutions like IIM, XLRI, and SPJIMR offer PGDM and not the MBA degree since these institutions are autonomous bodies and are not affiliated to any university. As such, there is no difference in what is being taught in PGDM and MBA.


However, the autonomous business schools frequently change the syllabus to meet the industry standards. A syllabus change in an MBA program is rare since the college offering the program has no authority to change syllabus. Before you make a decision you should also note that MBA programs are a lot cheaper than PGDM programmes.

Which is better: MBA or PGDM?

In an MBA degree, you will be provided with theoretical knowledge of management concepts and practices. Theoretical knowledge may

What I Learned In College About College

e10I was 17 when I was expected to choose a college based on what majors they offered that were in-line with what I wanted to do. I cringe thinking back on that! I could barely decide how to identify myself in the high school social arena, much less decide what I wanted to do with the next 50 years of my life.

Many adults don’t care to have meaningful conversations with 17-year-olds but expect them to make lifelong decisions about their future.

When I was a kid I loved reading about Jane Goodall and Penny Patterson’s work with her gorilla, Koko. I read books about animals constantly. I even took field notes during one summer about the life cycle of the butterflies in my backyard. I used to think that if I was only brave enough I would become a nature photographer and travel to remote parts of the world to record rare footage of beautiful creatures.

Somehow none of that was considered when I was looking for majors that were “in-line” with my interests. It was important to my parents that I became a professional, meaning

Top 10 Must Have Apps for Students

e9College time is a challenging phase of the life. Everything you do, it can have good or bad effects on your future. Many challenges are waiting in your way and overcoming them would be quite simple for you, if you become a tech savvy guy. Today, every adult uses the Smartphone and it has become quite an essential part of our lives. Youngsters mostly use their cutting-edge smartphones for chatting, gaming and social networking, but this device was built for many other important works. Students can take advantage of this device to improve their knowledge and gain better grades in the exam.

You may get amazed by knowing that many graduates are using Smartphone apps to improve their skills. The app designers introduce some great features related to employment and education plans.

Things become quite better and easier, when smart people work in collaboration with each other. You can ask some genius students of your class to download some useful apps and

Does Your College President Interact With Students

e8Have you ever had something important you wanted to bring to the attention of the President of your college?

Students, Parents and Alumni may try to contact their College President via Telephone, E-Mail or by Letter. Some students may even visit the President’s office. Unfortunately, the typical reply most people receive is silence.

Phone calls are usually not returned and there will be no reply to your e-mail message or letter. Too many College Presidents have no time for or interest in the things that students, parents or alumni think or recommend. However, there is one exception–major donors. If someone donates $10,000 or more, they may get a form letter or a message from a staff member. The fact that students are struggling to pay $80,000 to $250,000 for tuition and expenses may not be recognized as a good enough reason to listen to their concerns and suggestions.

When you try to contact your College President, you may find that they have surrounded themselves with layers of protection and security. Nothing much gets through. Only the official policy gets out.

Few College Presidents pick up their own office

Why Should We Seek a College Education in Today’s Economy

e7Can you break the poverty cycle by getting a college degree?

Whatever education you get beyond high school will help you break the poverty cycle. There is no reason for anyone to live in poverty in this country. It is only a matter of one making good choices every day of one’s life. Not everyone will attain a 4-year degree, but everyone with an average ability can attain some form of education beyond high school, be it on the job training, a certificate program or an associate degree. It all depends on your interest, commitment and discipline. The more education you have, the larger your social and economic circle will be. In most cases, the higher is your level of education, the more successful you will be.

Once you have broken this poverty cycle, not only does it benefit you, but also it benefits your children, your grandchildren and for generations to come. The tendency will be that each generation will do better than what you did. You can only claim with pride that you have achieved success in life when all of your children are

5 Tips for Final Year Engineering Students

e61. Choose the right topic:

Decide a topic in your stream that you found to be interesting. It can be anything like a technology, or a topic, a chapter in book or at times even an issue that you read in the newspaper. At times it can be an assignment which you want to work more in depth.

Some of the commonly chosen domains are Networking, Mobile computing, Data Mining, Network Security, data Mining, Image Processing, Robotics, Power systems, Electrical engineering, wireless communications and Grid computing. All these domains deal with their own concepts. There are numerous reference works available based on these domains.

2. Collect References:

All that you need to keep in mind is that the topic you choose must be reachable to the audience. Make sure there are literature works available to refer. It is advisable not to refer textbooks or periodicals or journals. The academic based literature adds value to your project. Indian Universities prefer IEEE/Science Direct/ACM publications as valid reference base. Colleges affiliated to Anna University accept IEEE as reference work. At times universities refuse conference papers as reference work when it comes

How to Moot in Easy Steps The Skeleton Argument

e5Advocacy is often associated with oral advocacy. Mooting, however, as well as practice as, for example, a barrister or advocate, must combine with effective and persuasive oral advocacy with succinct and clear written advocacy to be truly effective. In fact, in civil law systems, written advocacy, through memorials and pleadings, are given greater weight than oral pleadings, if indeed there is an oral hearing. Similarly, in the English common law tradition, and in moots, the written advocacy forms an integral element of the overall moot, and therefore of the decision of the judge. The importance of a skeleton therefore cannot be overstated; this guide aims to give you some helpful tips in that regard.

Tip One: Brevity is your Best Buddy

There is a reason that a skeleton argument is called a skeleton argument. It is meant to form the bare bones of our overall oral argument, and for that reason it must be brief. Mooting competitions will usually set limits of one to two pages; even if they do not, it is inadvisable to extend a mooting skeleton argument beyond two sides of A4 paper.


Law Essay Tips From Law Tutors

e4Writing first class law essays can be a tall order, especially for those new to studying law. In this article, a law tutor gives his tips for writing a high-scoring essay, whatever the question.

Answer the Question

The most important tip, which any of your law tutors will tell you, is to answer the question. This advice seems obvious, but in fact answering the question presented a nuanced exercise. For example, if the question asks you to ‘compare’ two things, and you do not make that comparison the bulk of your answer, you risk losing marks. Similarly, an essay might give you a statement, and ask you to discuss it. For example, if your essay title was: “In the interests of business efficacy, the requirement of consideration in the English law of contract should be abandoned”, you would have multiple parts to answer. Yes, the main thrust is whether consideration should be abandoned, but you must also answer the ‘business efficacy’ part of the question. It may very well be the case, for example, that it is not business efficacy, but legal taxonomy that demands the

Career in Computer Science With Cyber Security and Forensics

e3Cyber forensics is studied as part of the digital forensic science subject. It pertains to the legal evidence lying in the digital storage media and the cyber space. Since the advent of digital age, the need to have cyber professionals has grown exponentially. It has basically resulted from the internet explosion in India that was witnessed recently owing to e-governance, e-banking, e-commerce and social media.

The demand for the course of B. Tech. Computer Science with Cyber Security and Forensics was triggered with continuous attacks on social media and its misuse. So, there was a cyber terrorism threat to the internet security of our country which it was not properly equipped to handle. After this threat started to impact the national security, the Indian government passed a resolution to have its cyber protection architecture in place at the national level.

Cyber Security Policy for Data Protection

The policy was proposed in 2011 seeking to protect the national assets from cyber-attacks and offering protection to the information of citizens. It was also directed at strengthening team dealing with Computer Emergency Response to audit, protect and spread awareness about

The Post College Blues

e2You came out with a general business degree, biology, psychology, or heaven forbid a performing /graphic arts BA and can’t find a job. Or you hate what you do, ‘accounting’s tedious, I want human contact’. The market is weak, despite media talk this election year. If only you had gone into engineering some of your relatives opine.

Hello millennial, things are not what they once seemed. You sit at your computer depressed. You think it’s your fault. ‘Your cousin is in medical school’ you hear.

What to do; you can’t stay a waitress forever. Go back to school says your father employed in the same field for 35+ years. Back to school; I don’t know what I want. Pick something; no longer follow your heart. The arts field is glutted as is psychology and tenured professorships.

Something safe, teaching, nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, dental-assisting, gets proffered. You Google it and find articles citing the Bureau of Labor Statistics, (a government agency), promising great job prospects in the future.

I beg to differ on some of these pronouncements. A girl I know went through dental assisting training. One year

A Quick Guide to Surviving Your Law Degree

e1It’s no secret that a law degree can be one of the hardest undergraduate degrees to undertake. The intellectual rigour, voluminous reading and numerous assignments make the subject tough to study. For this reason many students opt to hire law tutors to help them through the three years of their law degree. This helpful guide gives you some tips for surviving those key years in law school, to ensure you get the grades you need to bag that all-important training contract or pupillage.

Learn all you can from Careers Events

At the start of law school, students are almost immediately confronted with a number of careers events from firms and chambers. These can seem overwhelming; students in key hubs are invited to many such events a week. Yet there is inherent value in these events, outside of the free drinks and spread.

When applying for pupillage and training contracts, one important question that will almost always be asked is ‘Why us?’. A firm wants to know that you are applying to them for a considered reason, rather than just their pay packet. Rehearsing the firm’s awards or
