State car insurance rates

CarInsurance.com commissioned Quadrant Information Services to provide a report of average auto insurance rates for a 2016 Honda Accord for nearly every ZIP code in the United States. We calculated rates using data for up to six large carriers (Allstate, Farmers, GEICO, Nationwide, Progressive and State Farm).

Averages rates are based on full coverage insurance for a married 40-year-old male who commutes 12 miles to work each day, with policy limits of 100/300/100 ($100,000 for injury liability for one person, $300,000 for all injuries and $100,000 for property damage in an accident) and a $500 deductible on collision and comprehensive coverage. The rate includes uninsured motorist coverage. This hypothetical driver has a clean record and good credit. Average rates are for comparative purposes. Your own rate will depend on your personal factors and vehicle.

Nearly everything having to do with car insurance depends heavily on your state. The resources linked below will help you understand specific laws that may or may not affect you.

What is a tort state? : Thirty-eight states use the tort system, which means that someone is found at fault for every accident that involves car insurance, even if the fault is determined to be 50/50 between two drivers.

What is a no-fault state? : Under the no-fault system, car insurance companies pay for certain damages regardless of who was at fault. Laws vary among the 12 states that have no-fault insurance.

No pay, no play states : In states with no pay, no play laws, driving without insurance is even more risky than in other states. Uninsured drivers in these states are not compensated for any damage, even in accidents that are not their fault.

Which states share speeding ticket information? : Many states have formal agreements with each other, such as the Drivers License Compact and the Non-Resident Violator Compact, to share information regarding traffic tickets when drivers are ticketed out of state.

Texas CDL Training and Truck Driving Schools, texas state technical college waco.#Texas #state #technical

Texas Trucking Schools

Becoming a truck driver in Texas doesn’t have to be too steep a hill to climb, as long as you meet some minimum requirements. If you want to find trucking schools in Texas, go through this checklist first:

  • Prove a clean driving record?
  • Pass a drug test?
  • Prove you are 21 and a legal US resident?
  • Provide employer references to show a good work history?

If you said, “Yes!” to all of those items and you think it would be cool to be a truck driver, then let’s look at what you can expect in Texas CDL schools.

First of all, there are three different types of CDL’s you can earn:

Class C is the initial license, with B and A coming next. If you earn your CDL-A, you can operate any type of Class B or C vehicles. We always recommend students earn their CDL Class A so they can qualify for the most kinds of trucking jobs in Texas.

Independent Vs. Company Owned Trucking Schools

CR England Truck Driving School also hires some of their students once they complete their CDL training. This can be a benefit of going to a company owned school. If you knock your instructor’s socks off, you might graduate behind the wheel, with a haul of medical and dental benefits, paid time off, and a hiring bonus to boot!

However, going to an independently owned school has its advantages as well. Let’s say, you aren’t sure who you want to work for or what kind of truck driver you want to be. Then an independent trucking school might be the solution. They can typically introduce you to several transportation companies that need drivers. But, company owned schools may even offer that benefit as well. That’s why we encourage students to explore all their options for CDL training in Texas.

Have You Considered A Bachelor’s Degree In Transportation?

That’s right. Even if you love driving, there are other options for careers in the transportation industry. Sometimes, drivers decide they need more time at home, or their physical well-being declines, and life on the road just isn’t practical any more.

Schools like National American University can help you move up the logistics chain with their Supply Chain Management Bachelor’s Degree program. With the skills learned in this curriculum you can learn to be an effective leader who helps transportation companies run more efficiently.

  • Additional learning outcomes in this Bachelor’s in Supply Chain Management from National American University include:
  • Make smart determinations about inventory turns, waste reduction, and customer service skills
  • Understand changes in the supply chain and how to effectively adjust with minimal impact
  • Understand how to read forecast patterns to make sure goods remain in supply for customers

In your role, you might also examine internal company processes to make sure your teams are working smoothly together as well. Remember, every component of the logistics industry requires constant examination and scrutiny, with so many variables that change constantly. If you think you are ready to shift gears from a trucking career to logistics-oriented work, check out the supply chain bachelor’s from National America.

Are you ready to compare trucking schools in Utah, including CR England Truck Driving School? Just use our extensive list of CDL training options to get started!

If you want to become a truck driver, you can benefit from the financial aid opportunities at the Truck Driver Institute. They have agreements with many employers that are willing to pay for your education.

Comparing Truck Driving Schools in Texas

To choose a school that’s right for you, think about your career goals and what you want to learn. There are many diesel technology programs in Texas, including some that allow you to specialize in one type of diesel vehicle. Laredo Community College is one school that has two diesel technology degrees. You can compete a one-year certificate in general diesel engine repair or a one-year certificate that specializes in heavy truck undercarriage repair.

If you decide to pursue a truck driving education, there are several schools in Texas that offer license assistance. Class A CDL has many career and licensing assistance programs. They lend you a tractor trailer for your driving exam, provide study videos and study packages, and even offer on-site license assistance. Once you have your license, they help you with the job search by connecting you with local employers.

Get on the Trucking Road in Texas

As a truck driver or diesel mechanic in Texas, you may wonder how much money you can earn.

Below you can find a graph outlining Texas trucking and diesel mechanic salaries compared to the trucking salary average nationwide. All data retrieved from Bureau of Labor Statistics (2015).

Student Testimonials

‘I have two small children and when we talk about the importance of education one of the things my husband and I always like to tell our children is you finish what you start. It was kind of hypocritical for me to say that when I didn’t finish what I started so for me to have the opportunity to come back and do that in a way that didn’t disrupt our family, didn’t hurt our pockets, was just a really good thing for me. The professors, or mentors as they’re called, were awesome. They were always available. It really defied my stereotype of what it would be like to go to school online.’

Tiffany Jenkins ’10

‘I chose the college because it afforded obviously that wonderful flexibility, brought your classroom to your home or wherever you happened to be. It offered what I was looking for in my nursing program. I was very impressed with the fact that if you did need to speak to someone there was someone on the other end of the phone line when you called. They have a tremendous support online as well.’

Leslie Beck, RN ’09, ’12

‘My experiences as a student were nothing short of wonderful. The flexibility that the college provided was fantastic. I finished 18 prior learning assessment portfolios. Also Thomas Edison State College was able to take my credits – CLEP credits, they took credits from communicate college and they took ACE credits.’

Rolando Gorostiza ’07

‘The professors were very timely if I had a question and they got back to me right away. They got back to me with answers that were easy to understand. If I didn’t understand via email or electronic means I was able to contact them via phone and talk the problem out, which was very necessary when you got into some of the more complicated classes.’

Brad Brezinski ’04

‘It was a wonderful experience. The online program really does give you some flexibility. It provided me with the flexibility to keep my full-time job, go to school full-time and complete this in seventeen months.’

Michele DeNoia, RN ’12

‘They have a non-traditional means and medium for delivering quality education that enabled me to realize both my academic and personal dreams and goals.’

Dean Clemente ’11

‘I looked around at a lot of schools and evaluated them when I was in the military and from what I saw Thomas Edison offered me the best means to accomplish my degree. I transferred a lot of my credits; Thomas Edison accepted all of them. I’m glad I chose this school.’

‘When I looked at other schools for finishing my degree Thomas Edison really had the edge over all the other schools, even looking at private colleges near where I live just north of Philadelphia.’

Brian Fogarty ’98, ’11

Thread: Texas A M – Commerce (GMAT can be waived it’s AACSB-accredited)

Teachers play an important role in fostering the intellectual and social development of children during their formative years. The education that students acquire is key to determining the future of those students. Whether in elementary or high schools or in private or public schools, teachers provide the tools and the environment for their students to develop into responsible adults.
Teachers act as facilitators or coaches, using classroom presentations or individual instruction to help students learn and apply concepts in subjects such as science, mathematics, and English. They plan, evaluate, and assign lessons; prepare, administer, and grade tests; listen to oral presentations; and maintain classroom discipline. Teachers observe and evaluate a student’s performance and potential. They are increasingly asked to use new assessment methods

�Public school teachers must be licensed, which typically requires a bachelor’s degree and the completion of an approved teacher education program; private school teachers do not have to be licensed but may still need a bachelor’s degree.
�Job prospects are best for teachers in high-demand fields, such as mathematics, science, and bilingual education, and in less desirable urban or rural school districts.
�Teachers must have the ability to communicate, inspire trust and confidence, and motivate students, as well as understand students’ educational and emotional needs.

Anyone did the indiana state university LPN to BSN online? Or have any info?

#

Anyone did the indiana state university LPN to BSN online? Or have any info.

I am currently a BSN student with ISU, and I must say my experience has been great. I want too say too those who are not good at taking online classes this program is NOT for you. I am finishing up my first semester now, I took two classes LVN to RN as well as Physical Assessment class. It was alot of work, but all it takes is time management and you can get the work done.

You must have all your pre req complete before applying to the nursing program then you must complete the 4 nursing modules as well as the ATI TEAS exam. All the information is on on the ISU Nursing web site.

Kgeiger1 and I are of the same mind. Distant learning is not for everying. It is rigorous and requires committment. You are in nursing school; just because you are in distant learning does not make the program any easier. In fact, it may be even more rigorous.

The decision to enter into the program should not be taken lightly. You must have time to study, do all the assigned reading work, papers, and exams. every week. The program expects that you are a nurse, have previous nursing knowledge, and able to do the same work as any regular BSN student in the same class in the ISU campus.

Welcom aboard KG1.

Thanks for the input and info on ISU’s LVN/LPN to BSN program. I am BSN student at ISU and am just finishing my first semester. The program is very good. As others have said, it does require a lot of self discipline and use of goof time management skills. I think the eduction is very similar, if not the exact same, as what you would receive in a ‘in class’ BSN program. The only flaw with the program, from my experience, is that you must maintain your LPN or LVN license while completing clinicals. When I started ISU’s BSN program I was living in CA and working as a LVN. I received my LVN license through CA’s military challenge option, as I was a prior Corpsman. I’ve recently move to WI, and found out that WI will not let me transfer my LVN license here, because I did not attend an accredited LPN/LVN program. So now, I may not be able to continue in ISU’s program because I will not be able to get a WI LPN license. This seems very odd to me. If was not a LPN/LVN and applied to any BSN program as a generic entry student, I would participate in clinicals as a BSN student, not as a LPN/LVN. Very frustrating to say the least.

Hello,
Im completing the prereqs as what ISU wants but I am having difficulty trying to find a proctor for exams. Does anyone know of a proctor service that is provided in California?
BTW, its great to hear that you are enjoying the program so far, gives me confidence that I am going in the right direction. I also had distance learning in the past and am very comfortable with it.

Master of Health Administration in Health Policy and Administration

Enhance your Leadership Capacity; Make a Difference in the Lives of Others

The health care system of the future must focus on greater efficiency and quality through improved technology, organization, and management. There is growing demand for new leaders who can find solutions to the problems we face, both now and in the future.

A Master of Health Administration in Health Policy and Administration (MHA) can help you combine your health-related work experience with a strong business management education, expanding your qualifications for challenging leadership positions in health care and giving you the tools to lead change in a dynamic environment.

Why Penn State World Campus

An online MHA from Penn State can provide opportunities for advancement in your career as a health care professional. The degree program is a collaboration between Penn State World Campus and the Penn State Department of Health Policy and Administration and the School of Public Affairs.

The rapid evolution of the health care environment through changes in population demographics, legislation, regulation, policy, and technology means that updating your education is no longer a luxury; it’s a necessity. If you have work experience in health care and want to enhance your applied business management skills, Penn State’s online MHA program was designed for you.

Doctor of Nursing Practice

A doctoral degree in nursing from World Campus

The online Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) is a professional, practice-focused doctoral degree designed to prepare highly qualified advanced practice nurses to be leaders and deliver expert nursing care and ultimately improve health care outcomes. This degree is designed for you if you are a nurse who plans to continue in a practice role, and you have already received a bachelor’s or master’s degree with a major in nursing.

Doctor of Nursing Practice at Penn State

Providing quality nursing education since 1964, Penn State’s College of Nursing, in partnership with Penn State World Campus, can help you update your knowledge and skills to meet the demands of the constantly changing health care field. Based on your previous education and nursing experience, the DNP degree will have two entry options:

  • directly from the Bachelor of Science in Nursing for nurse administrators
  • post–Master of Science in Nursing for nurse administrators and advanced practice nurses

Your online DNP courses

Built on the DNP essentials developed by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, the curriculum will focus on the translation of research into practice, transformational leadership, and advanced expert nursing practice. To support these essentials, your course work will also include nursing/change theory, foundations of advanced practice, health policy, informatics, and population-based health.

While providing you with the convenience and flexibility of an online program, the online DNP will include the same rigor you would expect from a traditional doctoral-level nursing program. In order to properly prepare you for the highest level of clinical nursing practice, you will be required to attend in-person intensive sessions and complete other doctoral benchmarks. including your candidacy examination, comprehensives, and DNP project with an oral presentation.

The Penn State College of Nursing is approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing. Penn State’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) (One Dupont Circle, NW, Suite 530, Washington, D.C. 20036; 202-887-6791).
