Officially Acquired Bachelors Degree!

Just got the email today from WGU on my graduation from the BSNOS program. Very happy finally having acquired this degree. It has been long overdue. Due to various circumstances I've had to delay my studies but I'm finally happy to have this under my belt. This also has a bigger significance in that I'm the first person in my family to have achieved a college degree. I discovered WGU through this site and have followed the educational and professional journeys of a lot of you here, giving me the motivational boost needed to start the program and ultimately complete it. Now to relax a bit and figure out my next moves.

    I was considering CWNA next but I'm at the moment I'm thinking of going back into some Cisco stuff, perhaps looking into getting my CCNP. Specifically the CCNP 350-425 seeing that the company I work for need more wireless specialists and most of our wireless infrastructure is Cisco. The new thing they are implementing are MIST APs for our remote sites so I'm also looking into the MIST AI cert which I may focus on first as they starting to roll that out soon. Another reason to going back into Cisco stuff is because I'm an at a junior level in my team and would like to get more practice with configuration and troubleshooting of our network devices. I'm still going to read through the CWNA book that I purchased for the knowledge of it.

    So yeah, my time of studying will be re-commencing. Will probably be going full force next month (so in another week or so lol)

    Please Consider  my advice:

    When it comes to choosing what  to do Next...   Follow your INTEREST.
    Don't pursue what your boss wants you to do...  Follow what YOU want to do.

    It will help with keeping your Motivation high.
