    Greetings and Salutations,

    After 13 years of nursing, and the collapse of job opportunities (for my low level nursing certificate,) I am forced to further my education. I commited academic suicide at a young age, by *blowing off* my education and becoming a Vocational/Practicle nurse. My original plan in life was to pursue a degree in Mathematics, how I ended up a nurse, I do not know.

    I completed two years of calculus in high school, and have recently pulled out the ole text book to re-teach my self. It has been 15 years since I took those classes, and yes I '''''ed up and didnt take the AP exams.

    Looking for self-study direction, I stumbled across the actuary field, and have decided, that for *fun* I would model my home studies to pass the P exam, I guess to see If I can do it.

    I have been reading and can not find any mention of anything in the DFW area, jobs, societies, clubs, schools that offer actuarial concentrated studies, so I guess
    my question is this: Is there anyone out there from North Texas? Student or professional?

    I have asked everyone I know, and NOONE knows an actuary, or even has a clue what they do, and most have never even heard of an actuary.

    Angela in Weatherford Texas.

    I dunno, I remember reading this thread a few months ago; I know it's not directly answering your questions, but maybe it will help:
    act justly. walk humbly. .

      I know UT Austin has an act sci program. For companies in the DFW area, search Dallas or Fort Worth in the SOA directory.
      Whether you are the lion or the gazelle, when the sun comes up, you better be running.
