I am a nurse educator working with the BSN program at Vancouver Community College.
I enjoy being an adult learner, I took my master's in my 40's and completed my bachelor's in my 50's. You say, "that is the wrong order", I say, "why does there have to be an order?"
This is something that was posted on Facebook, I felt that even for adult learners and those who are questioning their choice of being in a certain program this is something we need to tell our students (as their own "parents"). Sometimes we need to accept that the top mark is not what is to be valued but the value of the evaluation that we have experienced is in the process of the education leading up to the exam and what it teaches us about where we should be.
