I'm trying to decide between 2 programs - nursing and MRI (CT) tech. I've never thought about becoming a nurse, but while taking prerequisites 90% of my peers were going into nursing and that's when I started to think. I want to be in the field in which there are always possibilities to grow and learn. I don't want to get stuck and not be able to advance. Up till now, I was thinking about going into an x-ray program (AS) -> BSN in mri (ct) -> and then becoming a radiologist assistant but I've never met one and I don't know what are the chances of me becoming one. What I like about nursing is all the different fields you can specialize in, job security and room for advancement. I don't think I'd be good at or enjoy bedside care so I'd have to look into all the other options. Some nurses I've met tried to discourage me saying it's way more demanding than I think, that bedside care is very hard and that patients nowadays behave as if they were in a hotel and not a hospital.. Taking into account that my interest in nursing is pretty recent, I really have a hard time deciding. I need to decide quick so any thoughts / advice will be very appreciated. Thanks!
