Nursing to Nuclear Medicine

When my husband first started going back to college, this was when he was still in active duty in the Navy, he started off with a Nursing course. He was almost done with it, all he need was to to go to a hospital and do his internship. He wasn't able to do that because we got transferred to South Korea.    

When we were there, all he could do was an online  course so he took General Studies and graduated  with Associate of Arts, General Studies.  When we came back here, he enrolled in Nuclear Medicine, he did it for two semesters and he found out that job opportunity on this course was so scarce, so he diverted to Accounting.  He is now  down to  three subjects after this semester, so hopefully he would graduate soon.  
Taken when we  were going down to the hall where the Recgnition ceremony in  his school took place.
He told me that after the summer class, he still have  benefits left from his GI Bill so he wants to use it to get a certification for Medical  coding.  Hubby has so many credits in college now that if he could have took just one course,  he could have a master's degree with all the benefits that he gets from GI Bill.  But I guess it is not too bad to explore of the possibilities, so I support him fully!


  1. good opportunity. go for it, hubby!

  2. Good is hard but, sounds like you're all flexible and that's great.

  3. Go for it....I like that your Hubby is exploring and can work in so many avenues.

  4. i didn't know there is limited job opportunity with nuclear medicine. nursing would have been a good choice. well, the world always accountants, especially the good ones.:p

  11. My mother used to say that whenever you make a choice at university you close a door, so the objective was to keep as many doors open for as long as possible. Sounds like you husband has managed to do that very well, and in the future he'll certainly be glad he did! Great post!

  12. How interesting that he could take different classes! Happy week ahead.

  13. Very interesting, I didn't know either that there are limited jobs.

  14. I hope he does get a Master's Degree.

    I love the 'family-ness' of the photo. I know there's no such word but it's how it made me feel!

  15. it's good he is taking advantage of his opportunities
