Continuing Education

It has always been my dream to continue my education and attain a doctorate degree or a master's degree. It just saddens me that this dream is already very hard to attain because of my current situation. I'm already 20 years old and moving to Canada had a detrimental effect on my education. In Canada the high school is up to Grade 12, meanwhile in the Philippines it's only up to Grade 10. This means that my 3 years in university in the Philippines will be seen under Canadian standards as finishing Grade 11 and 12 and just 1 year of university.

So I'm going to finish my degree in 4 years and I will be 24 then. I'm thinking that I won't have time to study and work at the same time but this belief is disproved because of a friend with a similar situation as me. He studies at the Arizona School of Health Sciences Programs.

My friend is a physician assistant already and he is so busy in his job that he also thought that he wouldn't be able to continue his education and expand his clinical knowledge and skills. He also dreams of having a Master of Science degree in Physician Assistant Studies. Let's face it, if you have a higher degree more opportunities and even a better pay will follow as you can already justify that you are well qualified. On the other hand, broadening your clinical knowledge will boost your confidence and you can tap do more clinical procedures with your new knowledge and skills.

I have plans of working at the United States in the future and I might consider applying to an Arizona School of Health Sciences Online Program so that I can achieve my goals even if I am busy with work.
