Sounds like my situation, I was a vet tech for 10 years and finally made the decision to transition to humans back in 2007. I graduated nursing school in 2010...I have absolutely no regrets!! Most of being a vet tech is education of humans, so you already have that experience. I found that I am a bit better at IV sticks and that nursing school came much easier with my knowledge of medical terminology
, IV push medications, calculating IV drip rates, lab draws, and especially how to keep myself safe in those "wild animal" situations. I still keep my RVT license current, just in case, but have no regrets and am enjoying my job! Plus there is so much more opportunity for advancement and different areas of work to go into (not to mention making more than 3x the salary
. With vet tech, it was very limited. I hope this has some influence on your decision. Like I said, I have absolutely no regrets with going the nursing route, except that I didn't do it sooner!!
