I am currently in college to become a registered nurse but tonight the teacher who teaches my psychology class has mentioned that there is a shortage of school psychologists(he is also a school psychologist and teaches a night class once a week for his own enjoyment). I did some comparing and school psychologists make more money, they get out on school breaks, they sit on their butts for a large part of the day...and from what I have seen psychology is a pretty easy subject.
Which do you think would be better? Should I switch fields and get my master's degree in psychology with hopes of getting a lush job or do you think it would be better and more predictable to stick to the old ball and chain of nursing?
Or could a person do both?
Just make sure you're not oversimplying the position. That they make good money, sit on their butts all day, get long breaks and have an easy cirriculum might not be realistic.
Personally, I know I don't have what it takes to be a pyschologist of any kind. I'd rather bust my butt as a nurse any day of the week.
Good luck in whatever you do!
