I would appreciate any input here. I am starting my second career, I am wanting to go into health care. I was planning to go in to LPN school, but I am concerned about the lack of jobs available. I am not interested in long term schooling at this point, so I am looking for a career that I can begin with twelve to eighteen months of schooling. My first choice was LPN, but I am also interested in the Surgical Tech. program. In my area they earn about the same pay, and the Surg Tech program is about ten credit hours less. All of that being said, I believe that I would enjoy either career, but I wonder if there may be more opportunities for a surg tech than an LPN.
If anyone has gone through this program, please let me know what you think. I appreciate anyone that can give me advice here.
