Yesterday I received an acceptance to a college that I had almost forgot I applied to! When I wasn't sure about the wait lists to nursing school, I applied to a college for respiratpry therapy and I was accepted! Now I am not sure what to do because with that degree, I will start 1 year sooner & finish 1 yr sooner and the pay is about $6,000 more a year (I know it is not all about $, but I want to do well for my daughter.) I was also looking forward to nursing...but the few nurses I spoke with and told them about this, they told me to take it and "run as far away from nursing as you can."
It's tough b/c I have a family to think of first and without ever really "working" in either field, I don't want to make the wrong decision.
