So tonight I was going to go to my local community college and get some info on my pre-req's so that I can take them on-line before I start nursing school. Well, I was talking to my superviser at work about it and he pretty much told me that RN's get pd so well because they basically have to pay for their own health insurance. Is this true??? He guess about $500/month is what RN's have to pay out of pocket.
Another thing he brought up was that to become a nurse, the schooling was about 4 yrs and my first job may pay about $45k/yr. He suggested that I go to school to become a Radiation Therapist because he has a friend who does this and the friend only had to go to school for 2 yrs and makes about $60k-$75k/yr.
I have always wanted to be a nurse since I was 7 (I am now 34) but at the same time wouldn't mind making good $$ cause I am a single mom with no child support and am tired of struggling with the bills but I don't want a job that I won't love either.
I was THISCLOSE to getting my school started and now this. Any suggestions?? Thank you!
