I have recently been considering a career change from Nutrition to either RN or sonography. I have a Masters in Nutrition but the jobs do not pay well and there is no real opportunity for advancement. I am currently bored to death in this field.
Does anyone know the pay rate for sonographers? Is it as stressful as nursing? I have do a career and I am just trying to figure out the areas that are marketable and pay well also. I am currently only making $19-$20 an hour with 5 years experience. My CNA friends make just as much since most of the do doubles (2 shifts daily) or have two jobs and yet they have a high school diploma and a 2 months certification. It's rather frustrating after so many years of college. I always wish someone had adviced me to go for a Masters in Nursing instead of Nutrition. I would probably be making double.
I am ready to start at the bottom if I find a promising career.
