  Information about the Northwestern State basketball game on TV, NCAA, NAIA, and NJCAA recruiting, sports scholarships, scores, player stats, and rankings. Most college and university team rankings, along with the latest scores, can be found in the table below. If you like to play sports, rather than just watch the game, you may be able to compete either at intercollegiate levels for competitive sports, or simply play intramural sports to have fun, and make new friends. If you are thinking about playing college sports, attend a summer sports camp. Not only will the coaching staff get a chance to see you play, but you can check out the feel of the campus over several months. Not all recruiting is done like NCAA football and basketball. NAIA college coaches have less restrictions concerning when they are allowed to talk with recruits, and NJCAA scouts may show up at your high school games without any prior notice. Colleges that are eager to recruit star freshman athletes may urge student-athletes to apply via early decision. Students who are considering applying via early decision should be aware of the binding commitment this entails.

Athletic Scholarship Information

Northwestern State basketball game on TVYou don't have to quarterback the university football team to a state championship to earn an athletic scholarship. Most major sports that are able to field a team in intercollegiate competition have sports scholarships available. Ranging from women's gymnastics to men's track and field, coaches are seeking players to build a team around. That leadership role often is accompanied by a full-scholarship. The best time to begin searching for scholarships is before your senior year, in order to meet application deadlines. Schools also confirm that it is important to file financial aid forms such as the CSS Profile early in the school year.

There are several major scholarship databases available online. With an aggregate of well over a million scholarships, worth more than $3.4 billion, the scholarship search is the largest, most accurate and most frequently updated sports scholarship database. Average players often ask whether there are any sports scholarships available for them. Indeed there are, although you'll have to show a yearly pattern of improvement, and be ready to sacrifice yourself for the team. Take stock of your athletic abilities as you progress through high-school.

Team Practice

So, you've been recruited, or made it past a walk-on tryout. That's when the real challenge starts. You still have to make it through daily practices, and several additional rounds of cuts. A college team practice is far more demanding than high school, because the level of play is higher. Returning players are put through their paces, run drills, lift weights, and do the grunt work that comes with being on the team. Freshman and walk-ons, on the other hand, are special targets for the coaching staff, looking to test their ability.

Oak Tree4612,5007,0004,000
Human Bone11913,20018,00011,800

What you're left with after the dust settles, is the real team. These are the folks you lift with, and often live with as well. To succeed in practice, and actually make the team, here are some rules to follow. Sure, you know most of these, but do you actually do them?

Practice basic drills, especially targeting areas related to your position. Become a super-specialist, and you'll always find a place on the team. Know that giving anything less than one hundred percent effort will be resented by the rest of the team. Follow the advice that coaches are trying to give you, and it may a difference in how you play. Most coaches were star players at some point in their careers.

Nursing & Medical Job Listings

Earning a CNA degree (Certified Nursing Assistant) is the first step towards becoming a fully-qualified nurse. Most CNA programs can be completed within a few months, allowing you to join the workforce quickly. The next step in a nursing career is to become a LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) or LVN ( Licensed Vocational Nurse). These are year-long programs, in which you'll work under an RN distributing meds, treating wounds, and providing basic patient care.

In order to become an RN (Registered Nurse), a bachelors degree in nursing is recommended. RN's command a greater salary, and are responsible for an enlarged scope of practice over LPNs and CNAs. Students will receive classroom instruction and clinical training in a hospital setting. A 4-year BSN program allows students to further specialize in the areas of pediatrics, geriatrics and mental health. After completing your nursing education, you must be licensed by the state in which you'll be practicing, given that state boards of nursing each have specific certification requirements.
