Online Courses - MOOCs

Jefferson State Community College basketball playersThe best college for a student is not necessarily the highest ranking school in the Forbes or US News listings, but the college that offers a student rewarding career chances.

Athletic Training Exercises

In the weight room, don't be fooled by players who are always pumping iron. It takes a lot more than muscle mass to succeed in college sports. Players are becoming more agile, and developing superior game skills every year. It's true that you need to develop muscle strength, but your primary focus in weight training should be to use the equipment to help you develop along a natural range of motion. Several sets of push-ups, with a clap in the air every other rep, will do wonders to increase your chest and triceps. Chin-ups will increase your biceps, and pull-downs will bring out your lats.

Track stars have revealed the secret to developing endurance and increasing running speed. Most athletes simply run out of breath long before they need to stop running, because they aren't able to get the oxygen into their muscles fast enough. As lactic acid builds up, muscle fatigue sets in and untrained players think they've reached a natural limit. Track stars, and well-coached basketball teams, on the other hand, train by sprinting short distances over and over. It's not fun, but it works. After a few months of training, the lungs begin to process oxygen more efficiently, and players find that they can run long distances non-stop, or break out a sprint for a longer period of time.

Nursing & Medical Job Listings

Earning a CNA degree (Certified Nursing Assistant) is the first step towards becoming a fully-qualified nurse. Most CNA programs can be completed within a few months, allowing you to join the workforce quickly. The next step in a nursing career is to become a LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) or LVN ( Licensed Vocational Nurse). These are year-long programs, in which you'll work under an RN distributing meds, treating wounds, and providing basic patient care.

In order to become an RN (Registered Nurse), a bachelors degree in nursing is recommended. RN's command a greater salary, and are responsible for an enlarged scope of practice over LPNs and CNAs. Students will receive classroom instruction and clinical training in a hospital setting. A 4-year BSN program allows students to further specialize in the areas of pediatrics, geriatrics and mental health. After completing your nursing education, you must be licensed by the state in which you'll be practicing, given that state boards of nursing each have specific certification requirements.
