However, I wanted to put my reasons for struggling with my decision and see what others may do in my situation.
Originally, my very first thought was to go to sonography school.
For a number of reasons:
1. Most importantly ... it really intrigues me!
2. It's an associates degrees vs a bsn. (This appeals to a single working mother period)
3. Less stress in the field, whether it be physical or cut throat politics (which the latter would drive me insane!)
4. Hours are better than nursing, usually.
Then... I realized that since the accredited sonography program I would be going to is in the same area I would actually need to be employed.... finding a job may prove to be difficult upon graduation. THIS scares the heck out of me and is the ONLY reason I am considering nursing over sonography to be perfectly honest.
Ugh ... It is time for me to move forward... of course I still need prereqs but a and p one and two are the only 2 courses that mirror nursing prereqs. After a ton of research I don't think I would like nursing muchless love it. I'm pretty sure unless I was in a doctors office or home health in the field I would HATE it.
