There are more than 1 million solar installations spread throughout the country, and the numbers keep on growing. The number of solar installations more than doubled from 2015 to 2016, and it is the fastest growing form of power.
CEUfast CEO Julia Tortorice recently joined the solar energy revolution when she installed solar panels on the roof of her Florida home. She wanted to make the switch to solar energy for years to make a positive impact on the environment.
“I think solar energy options decreases our reliability on carbon products,” Tortorice said.

You may have graduated nursing school, but now you have another step before you can start saving lives. There’s only one thing standing between you and your goal of becoming a nurse: the NCLEX RN exam.
With a 100 percent pass guarantee, BoardVitals helps you prepare for this important exam with the resources you need to excel.
The National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN exam) is a test used to see if someone is qualified to begin practicing as an entry-level nurse. The questions are designed to test the critical thinking skills a nurse needs to make educated decisions while on shift.
Tired of working long hours at the hospital and not seeing your family? Well, I have news for you. You can have an RN career from the comfort of your own home.
You may have heard of nurses working from home and thought, “that’d be a great opportunity to spend time with my family,” or “I could use the extra cash,” but then dismissed that option.
You may have thought work at home opportunities for nurses are limited and far in-between. After all, you’ve got to work in a hospital, office, clinic or at the very least, a patient’s home to practice nursing, right? Wrong.
As nurses, you have knowledge that is very valuable and you can provide that knowledge outside of hospital walls.
Becky had built a successful career by the time she and her husband decided to become parents. At age 33, she got pregnant without any trouble and had an ordinary, healthy pregnancy. She gave birth to a baby girl without any complications and started breastfeeding successfully right away. Everything seemed great for a while—until it wasn't.
A month or so into her new life, she started feeling different. She was angry, sad, anxious, and overwhelmingly tired. She had trouble thinking clearly. It was more than just “the baby blues,” so at her six-week checkup, she mentioned how she was feeling. Her healthcare provider diagnosed her with postpartum depression and prescribed an antidepressant.
It’s a nurse’s duty to care for patients and improve the overall health of others, but how often do you stop to think about your own health?
If you’re in the majority of nurses, you don’t focus on your own health often enough — and it’s leading to medical errors when you treat patients at work.
A recent study by The Ohio State University showed more than half of U.S. nurses are depressed, making them prone to medical errors.
