Help please!!

  1. 0 I'm torn between becoming a LPN or Radiologist ..

    I think being a nurse would be great but the thought of bathing and bedpans the badsides of it scares me and I think I wont be able to make it through it, plus I heard it could be a lot of stress..

    being a radiologist I dont know too much about besides you do X-rays, can anyone give me more info? whats the downside to it? Is it better pay normally? Where are most radiologists located? do they do nightshifts etc like nurses?

    Being a Radiologist will take 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, and a 3 year residency, I have a feeling this is not what you meant

    I think you mean a radiology tech I would even suggest taking it a step further and looking into ultrasonography

    Try and do some job shadowing, maybe? Talk to some LPNs/RNs and rad techs about their job responsibilities, pay, hours, personal fulfillment, etc.

    http://www.radiography.com is a good board to ask questions about x-ray tech/sonography/MRI/CT programs.

    I've been trying to decide between nursing and rad tech myself! For now, I'm a nursing major but I still don't feel really confident in my decision.
