Can an associates degree get you pretty far in life? ?

I don’t really care about going to a 4 year University. I just want a degree under my belt. I think I can make an associates degree work for me though.

    Yes and No. it depends what you mean by far in life. It always depends on what your goals are? What are you planning on studying nursing? I’m sure an AA in nursing pays well?

    It can certainly help.  Will it help as much as a bachelor's degree?  Not even close.

    Look to community colleges for vocational/occupational training, not just a general education associate's degree. CCs will have programs for RN, X-ray & sonography techs, nurse's aides, billing & coding clerks - just to mention a few in healthcare field. You're more likely to find a job, establish a career with specific training, licensing for occupations which require that, than just a couple years of entry-level college courses. Check offerings for the CCs near you to see what interests you, and check the school's placement office as well as the local job market to see who's recruiting for what.

    Like most everything in this life, it just depends. If you get an associate's degree in TV repair, you're not going to have many advantages from it, but in one of the medical technician programs it can really make a great difference to your life.

    The general answer is no. In most academic fields, one has only a slightly better chance of getting "pretty far in life," with an Associates degree as one does with a high school diploma.

    Why not just go all the way? Doesn't count as the full degree anyway.
