Before responding to this, I would like to know if Tana's ultimate goal is
to be licensed as a social worker--and if so, whether a degree in tech and
prof. communication would allow that. In some areas, a degree outside the
field must be in one closely related (education often qualifies, I'm not
sure about tech writing). She should check this out carefully before
making a decision.

It sounds as if she would be quite capable of doing the work for a tech
and professional communications degree so that should not be a problem.
Whatever her decision, I wish her luck.

Practice makes perfect--or perfectly awful.
It depends on what you practice.
