Question by bianka.: Can i become a Special Education teacher with a degree in Liberal Studies?
I want to become a special education teacher but i don’t exactly know what to major in. Is it possible to recieve my degree in liberal studies and then complete a education specialist credential program? I need some advice on this please!

Best answer:

Answer by George
Yes, I think you can become a special education teacher with a degree in liberal studies. You should call or write to the Department of Education in your state. They will have a specialist in education talk to you about the requirements. I think you will have add some 4 to 6 classes before you can get a state certificate, but there is a great need for special education teachers. You are probably in a state that has that high need. Good luck..

Question by MagnusMoss: How long to become a Psychiatric Nurse Mental Health Clinical Specialists?
I have a cousin who started as a nurse, but now works in the mental health field, and can prescribe drugs. What exactly is she?

After playing with google, I found the title:
Psychiatric Nurse Mental Health Clinical Specialists

Does that sound right? How long does it take to become one? The state is Massachusetts.

Best answer:

Answer by Johnna
a licensed clinical specialist, in my experiences, has served more of a case manager role. sounds like your cousin is most likely a mental health nurse practitioner (ARNP – advanced registered nurse practitioner) which are permitted to prescribe medications. it is a specialized master’s degree in nursing.

I already hold a bachelors degree in secondary education for history. I am looking to become certified in special education (k-12) in order to help me get a job. How is this certification possible to obtain?

Answer by lib.rare.ian
Go to the Dept. of Education website for the state you are interested in, it will lead you to a page of teacher credential requirements, including requirements for a Special Ed. credential. You certainly would have to complete coursework in Special Education in a state approved program or an equivalency.

Question by Damo: When does self improvement become trying to be something you’re not?
Pretty much in the title of the question. Self improvement is good, but shouldn’t we also be happy in ourselves?
Thankyou for the answers, but I am not so much talking about superficial changes. More along the lines of trying to be more social or outgoing, being more empathetic of others, etc.

Answer by Curly
Possibly humans are alway trying to improve themselves all the time- an instinct maybe.

Question by B: How does one become a mental health nurse in Ontario?
I am an undergrad and thinking of applying to Nursing school next year, I am really interested in the field of mental health nursing, how can one become a licened mental health nurse in Ontario?

Best answer:

Answer by MichaelExe
“Educational requirements for becoming a mental health or psychiatric nurse vary depending on the province.

In Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan, people who work in this career are known as psychiatric nurses. In order to work as a registered psychiatric nurse (RPN) in these provinces, you must complete a psychiatric nursing program.

You can enter a psychiatric nursing training program right after high school. Another option is to complete a registered nursing program first, and then enter a post-graduate program in psychiatric nursing. Once you have successfully completed the psychiatric nursing program, you must write the qualifying exams that allow you to call yourself an RPN.

However, you do not necessarily need to be an RPN to work in psychiatric nursing. Some nurses move directly into this field after completing a registered nursing program.

In all other provinces, you must become a registered nurse (RN) before you can become a mental health nurse. To become an RN, you generally need to complete a 4-year degree in nursing. Although some provinces give students the option of taking a 3-year nursing diploma instead of a degree, most are now moving towards requiring a 4-year degree. Once you have obtained your training you must pass an exam to become an RN.

The exact route to becoming a mental health nurse after you have obtained your RN qualification depends on the employer. Some train RNs on the job, and others may require them to have obtained specialized training in mental health before they are hired. Post-graduate programs in mental health nursing are available at a number of colleges and universities.”

“The Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) offers voluntary certification for mental health nurses. Those who pass the certification exam are qualified to use the credential CPMHN (Certified in Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing). See the link to the CNA’s website in the Other Resources section for more information.”

Question by : What are the education requirements to become a nurse anesthetist?
I am interested in pursuing a career in nursing and possibly aspiring to nurse anesthetist and was wondering what the education requirements are. How does it compare with an actual anesthesiologist? Salary, education, etc..

Best answer:

Answer by jane
Anesthesiologist are medical doctors who go back to school for 2 more years.
A nurse anesthetist is a nurse practitioner who specializes in “sedation” for procedures and practices under the license of a doctor. So you go through the regular nursing program and get your associates degree. Then you go back to school to get your masters degree and that is what it takes to be a public health nurse. Then you go back to school that is a program for nurse practitioner that can diagnose, suture lacerations, write prescriptions, etc.

Question by Confused about life: I am on a quest for self-improvement. How can I efficiently become a better gamer?
I am currently on a campaign for self-improvement. A lot of aspects are involved. One thing I am upset about is that it seems that no matter how hard I try, I can never succeed at video gaming, despite the fact that I was awesome as a kid. It make me feel old. So what I am wanting to know to help is:

1.) How do I efficiently improve my skills in first person shooters, RPGs, action/adventure, sports, and strategy games (both real-time and turn-based)?

2.) I have heard that, in MMORPG’s especially, many people use macros to help them advance without investing so much time. In the past, this has frustrated me. Any insight into this?

3.) Can you use an external hard drive with Xbox 360 and Wii through the USB port? I’m finding that the new 120 GB hard drive for X360 is pricy, and I would appreciate if Wii had a hard drive.

Answer by two_eighty_eight
If video game is part of your “self-improvement” list, you need to get a life. Yikes…
