Radiology Technician before Nursing

  1. Hi everyone,

    I am intending to apply for Bachelor of Science in Nursing school. The school has a "Basic Entry" for non-nursing students which takes three years to complete. The school requires no nursing or medical experience, but I heard the waitlist may take long.

    Most RN schools require applicants to complete their prerequisites before apply to their program. Because of this reason, I do not have the time to go to the two years of the RN associate degree, so my plan during the waitlist period is to go for the 2 years radiology technician liscense while waiting. My application and prerequisites for rad tech. is all set; I can enter the program next fall if I decide to.

    I am not sure I am making the right decision. Any advice is welcome.

    While both careers are in the medical field, if you know you want to be a nurse, can you apply to other schools? I would think that few of the courses in the rad tech program would cross over to the nursing program.
