Hello everyone! I have posted around here before, so maybe I might seem familiar.. If not, well, I am a junior in highschool, and I WAS deciding on majoring in nursing in college. After reading alot on these boards, how much nurses make (truly pitiful), poor working conditions, etc.. Im not sure I want to do this my whole life any more. But I know that I want to go into the medical field, in some form. If I do go the nursing route, I'll be doing the CRNA schooling a couple years after.
But I wanted to ask... If you hadn't chosen nursing as a career, what would you like to be doing now? And another Q, what are some other medical professions that are more respected/well paid (other than MD.. 10 more years of school doesnt appeal to me)? Thanks so much!
