Hello! I used to attend a traditional university, but having a chronic illness has made this impossible. I'm now looking at getting my BS online, and I'm interested in science and, specifically, the healthcare industry. I would be interested in a career in patient advocacy, coordinating patient care, educating patients about their illness/diagnosis. I love all aspects of science, as well. I was pursuing my BS in biology at the traditional university, but I know this will not be possible online. That's ok. Please try to keep the following in mind if you decide to give me advice: I have a chronic and progressive illness that is very likely to shorten my lifespan. My main reason for trying to continue my education is that I genuinely love learning, school, and achievement. So, this experience of earning a degree will be primarily for pleasure, but I do want to be taken seriously. I know this may be hard to understand, especially since I may not wind up being able to work outside the home (or even live long enough to graduate), but it's something I really want to do. I've been looking at the various "health sciences" degrees offered from different online universities, but they all sound so similar that it's hard to choose. I don't want to choose the "wrong" one (I'm most concerned about avoiding choosing something completely irrelevant or useless), so I'm reaching out for advice. Any advice, experience, or wisdom is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
