This was a guest post from my friend Rachael Mineut.
I came to America from France as an Au Pair and had been working for a family for two years when I realized that I was making money but I could be spending my off hours doing something else like pursuing an education as a nurse or a doctor. Though I love children and my job as an Au Pair I was becoming bored and felt that I needed to work with my studious nature instead of ignore it as I had been doing. I looked up some internet schools around the area on hughesnet and found that some of them allow you to take internet classes and study the course material all on your own time and schedule. I signed up for the classes and then went to hughesnet.com to buy reliable wireless internet. This allowed me to explore new territories in my life and keep my job as a nanny while pursuing an education in nursing. Four years later I am working as a nurse at a pediatricians office. I was able to save all of my money working as a live in nanny while earning my degree thanks to my online school, hughesnet Louisiana’s wireless internet, and hard work. I am now as happy as ever working with children in the medical field and I had practice in both areas with my very workable Au Pair and online nursing student combination.
