Search for accredited online degree & diploma

Why we need Online Colleges and Universities

Bricks and mortar colleges and universities versus online colleges and universities

My country used to have very good and well ranked University and Colleges (bricks and mortar). Unfortunately, because of some flawed policies like the shift away from English as the medium of instruction and especially the affirmative programs, none of my country's universities was ranked in the first 200 of all the universities of the world. My nieces and nephew were separated from their parents at a tender age and went for matriculation and tertiary education overseas. If the parents wanted their children to be at home, they should look for good online accredited college or university.

Working people plus those living in remote areas

Some people may have to hold a job prematurely for survival or to support aged parents of younger siblings. Such people may still harbor ambitions of getting a diploma or degree. Some people may be living in remote areas and not keen to relocate. For these groups of people, good accredited colleges or universities will suit them fine.

What is educational accreditation?

Products, facilities and services including education can vary widely. Consumers and users of various facilities and services obviously will want an authoritative organization to rank them and give an accredited status to those which passed the litmus tests. This is quality control. In the case of educational accreditation, the services (teaching) and facilities (infrastructure) and product (diploma or degree) are assessed and those diplomas and degrees that made the grade are given accredited status.

Employers when hiring often have the results as indicated in the diplomas and degrees of candidates perhaps supplemented by face-to-face interviews. Most employers will give preference to candidates with diplomas or degrees that are accredited.

Nursing profession nursing uniforms

Nursing as a profession

Nursing is a noble profession and not one that is the easiest to practice. But with the current shortage of nurses world wide, there is great demand for nurses and if you get your formal training and qualification as a nurse, you will be in demand world wide and can be highly mobile and can be quite sure you will be welcomed in many countries. However, there is one aspect of nursing that some may not like - they have to wear a nurse uniform like one in the photo below:

For modern, fashionable women, that requirement to wear a traditional nurse uniform may be a deterrent to enter this noble and highly needed profession.

What is nursing uniform (nurse uniform) and why?

A nursing uniform or nurse uniform is uniform worn by nurses for hygienic and identification purposes. A nursing uniform (nurse uniform) comprises a dress, apron and cap and is easily recognizable by most in my country. However, from this online merchant website Nursing Uniforms, nursing uniform (probably in the United States of America) has gone very modern and fashionable and would hardly be recognizable as a nurse uniform in my country, except for a very exceptional few. However, I would expect that in a highly developed and ultra modern country like the United States of America with strict standard for everything, I would expect the hygienic aspect is not compromised. And I would not doubt that the more fashionable nursing uniforms like the Medical Scrubs would be highly appreciated by the American nurses and make nursing a more attractive profession. Look at this more modern nursing uniform for example

modern nurse uniform

That is what I would consider to be quite near to a traditional nursing uniform. Browse through categories of nursing uniforms like Dickies Scrubs and you will see more modern and fashionable nursing uniforms that would be highly appreciated by our modern women. You want to browse through more, try Landau Scrubs.

Hopefully this trend of allowing more modern and fashionable nurse uniforms will reach my country very soon as our hospitals are facing an acute shortage of nurses, and I believe allowing such modern and fashionable nurse uniforms will persuade more of our women join the noble nursing profession.
