So I'm having a hard time deciding on what I want to do with my life. Medical field has always interested me, and that is what I'm shooting for. I've been in school now 3 years, 21 years old, taking mainly general courses and courses for different medical programs(changed my major a few times). Anyway, I was accepted in a Respiratory Therapy program at a private college near me. It starts in January, however everything I read is that it is tough to get a job, and don't want to be stuck without a job especially after the 25k I'd have to take out in student loans for just an ASN. Well last year I had applied for the RN program at my CC(a great program BTW), and missed the GPA cutoff barely(3.38). I decided for the time being that maybe RN wasn't for me. I have been teetering between the RT or going back to LSU and getting my bachelors in something non healthcare related, which is all that is offered. Well today I thought, maybe I should go back to the CC, take a couple classes to get my core GPA back up, along with classes that would go toward my bachelors in case I don't get in again, and reapply. I know that RN jobs are especially easier to come by, make more money than RT, and being a guy feel like I would have a much better shot. The RN program would end one semester after RT ends, and about one or two semesters before I would finish my bachelors. However, the program is still only an associates degree, and I feel like after this much schooling I should have my bachelors and that is sticking to the back of my mind. My long term goal is to become a PA, so that is why the bachelors comes to play, but I also need the healthcare experience. I would spend significantly less on becoming an RN tho. I guess I'm getting agitated being in school so long even though it's not a huge deal, I just want to be able to expand my career if need be, which with a bachelors I feel is easier to do. So my question to you all is, is it more worth it for my to go back to CC and become an RN, RT, or get my bachelors in business finance which I would finish roughly in the same amount of time.
