DO you think that there is a decent chance in finding a job as xray tech???
I actually job shadowed two places and liked it I think. I was accepted into a program that was hard to get into but changed my mind due to scared to get a job... Do you think its really hard to find one? I am thinking about rea pplying to program and trying again if theres a decent change ill find a job...
So you believe xray tech is the way to go your saying??? not heard of interventional tech....
LPN school requires a lot of studying/reading and a decent amount of time. It is really not as hard as people make it out to be, I think if you are motivated to do it.. then you will be fine. It is a short schooling(1 yr after prereqs) and decent pay. (15-17/hr).
I think that they are getting rid of a lot of LPNS in hospital settings is what I hear. I think that it is quite easy to find a job in a long term care setting, I found two easily and got 2-3 calls for more interviews after already being hired elsewhere.
I would go for it and I think if you like being an LPN that you will be able to get your RN (just one more yr) and not be scared to do it or whatever your reasoning is. Then youd have better luck at ur dream job.
If anyone has been both an RN and xray tech or know the two professions well, please give some advice. I am a LPN and can not choose between RN or xray tech. I feel sort of not confident to do RN so leaning towards xray tech. Any advice would be great. Also, the thing stopping me from xray is I hear it is very very difficult to find an xray job, esp full time or even part time!!
(dont want to go to school and never find a job in xray?!)
What did you like better? xray tech or nurse???
Are you all going to get the H1N1 vaccine this falL???
21!! LPN graduate may 09
Thanks... well i am an lpn and the xray tech program is 2 years long including summers....
??? so im way confused... i feel like thats alot to put into something that might not be worth it.
plus maybe im happy with nursing??? you like your job alot???
is it better to be into nursing or x ray technician?
i am sure some of you nurses who work at hospitals have an idea what is better and if there are any xray tech jobs even available?
OK, PLEASE give me any advice, I need to decide this problem by tomorrow. (so i can let the school know not attending if i shouldnt go)
I am currently an LPN who has been accepted into this great Xray technician program which I had planned on doing for a couple years but after i looked into it, it seems as though there are not many x ray tech jobs after graduating.
I am scared to go into the program for two long years if I cant even find a job after. Do you all think I should do it or else apply on a waitlst for my RN???
PLZ PLZ PLZ ANY advice will help me!
