Megan Thee Stallion is going to school for healthcare administration

I don’t actually know much about Megan Thee Stallion. Every time I see her in an interview, I think she’s really fun, but I really just know her from the few Hot Girl Summer clips I saw. Megan was a guest on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show on Monday along with her adorable French Bulldog named 4oe Thee Frenchie. Once again, Megan was delightful, fangirling when she found out Janet Jackson following her on Instagram. But what I found most interesting was when Jimmy asked Megan about being a college student, which I did not know she was. Megan confirmed that she’s gone back to school to study Healthcare Administration so she can open her own assisted living facility.

What Megan said was really incredible. To surmise, Megan explained that her grandmother told her she should go to nursing school, so she did. Once there, she said she felt “stupid” because everyone else answered all the questions and participated so much. But she realized that it wasn’t her intelligence, it was that nursing had not been her choice and she didn’t have a connection to it. However, after watching her grandmother take care of her great grandmother, Megan found her connection to the profession, which led to her plan to open an assisted living facility so families can have help taking care of each other. That’s beautiful. I also love that she wants to open this facility so she can hire all her classmates after they get their degrees.

Following that, Jimmy asked Megan about her other charitable endeavors, including her partnership with Amazon, in which they matched Megan’s donation to an assisted living facility that she’s working with. They also provided Kindle Fire tablets so families can talk to their grandparents who are quarantined there. She also teamed up with Cash Out to get her Hotties (her fans) some cash payments because many of them are students with no source of income right now. Megan’s latest outreach is the All In Challenge for a chance to spend the day with Megan on the set of one of her videos. In case you haven’t visited the All In Challenge site, they have some incredible experiences to bid on. The money raised goes to those affected by COVID-19 and so far, they’ve raised over $16M. Jimmy seems genuinely enamored with Megan throughout the whole interview and I can see why. She’s a dynamite young lady.

      SUGA is EVERYTHING!! For real, for all the attention Cardi B’s terrible album got…. Miss Megan gave us the banger of 2020 and she hasn’t gotten half the attention. Very disappointing.

    About healthcare at the moment:
    Yesterday my husband opened the bill for his cancer treatment. It was nearly 50 000 dollars, the amount the hospital & drug factories charge, and the insurance pays most of it. (Of course, our insurance payments monthly are huge.) Still, the amount left was more than normally, around one thousand. When my husband called them and asked why, the person asked a bit more about our insurance and then said, all salty, okay, I can make a courtesy waiver (?????) and you only have to pay a hundred dollars.
    I’m horrified. What if he had not called them?
    I will never let myself get sick. I will never go to a hospital. Even if my fingers fell off, I would not go to a hospital, that’s how awful the system is in this country.

    • Izzy says:

      Holy wow. Their salty reaction too. Does your husband have a case manager assigned at the insurance company? It can be very helpful for people managing their insurance bills for linger treatment or chronic illnesses and it also puts the insurance provider on notice that you are paying attention to every single bill.

      • Allergy says:

        Thanks Izzy – no, I don’t think so. I have to ask him if there’s one.
        Also, that one needs an extra person to oversee the billing so that it won’t go “wrong” is so crazy. It adds to the bureaucracy and costs everyone more. This system just is not working.

      Healthcare in the US is a nightmare. We shouldn’t have to have massive fundraisers for people to get cancer treatments, or for kids who get injured, as we’re currently doing in my town. And insurance should not be tied to employment.
      It’s insane, but it is always worth talking to someone at the hospital – it’s a long and complicated story, but basically because of the “tiered” system of my insurance, I got hit with a huge bill, and after meeting with someone at the hospital’s financial office, they knocked my balance WAY down to a manageable amount.

      • Trillion says:

        way to advocate for yourself! Think of all the people who don’t have the wherewithal to do that. Our system is so fucked. I’m a nurse. The most I cry at work is dealing with insurance companies. Not sick patients. I’m serious.

    • Aitana says:

      U R exactly right abt the state of health care in this country, & I feel the same as U. The only way I’m going to a hospital is if I’m unconscious & can’t tell the EMT’s “no.” I have insurance, too, but I had a large kidney stone on 2/14/19, & went to hospital. They did a CT scan to diagnose me, but they didn’t do anything else. My insurance paid them, (like over 3,000 the insurance. paid), & the balance of the bill, just over $5,200, they are dunning me to pay. I called the hospital before I went there & told them what kind of ins. I have & asked them if them if what my insurance. pays them would be considered payment in full, & they said YES. So, basically they lied to me & now I’m worried abt my $1,200 check that we’re all supposed to get will be garnished. It’s just awful.

      Edit: BTW, Megan Thee Stallion is THE BOMB! Love her!

    Meghan is great. Glad she is valuing her education and found something that she is actually passionate about. Kudos to everything else she is doing

  7. L says:

    That’s really cool.. she sounds compassionate, thoughtful, sentimental, hardworking… I’ve never listened to her music but I’m going to check it out now!

  8. margedebarge says:

    Good for her! Nursing school is no joke and not for everyone, but there are so many other ways to have a meaningful and impactful career in healthcare. Administrators and lab techs and CNAs and so many other people are needed to keep the system running.

    • Trillion says:

      I didn’t go to nursing school until I was almost 50. I did a direct entry Master’s program that was 3 years condensed to 2. It was hard. I never could’ve done it in my 20′s.

  9. lucy2 says:

    I love her! That she continued her education despite having such huge success is so impressive. And all her charity work too.
