Thank you damrcngrl95! Even though the job prospects seem a bit lower than in nursing, but in the end I have to choose what makes me happy and what would be better suited for me. However I seem to find pros and cons in both fields, and I am still "on the fence" regarding which path is what I "really love". Regardless, I really appreciate your input, and happy to hear that you are into Respiratory - seems very interesting!
Yes, I got accepted to both programs. The university here lets 300 students in for the nursing group, but only 60 people get accepted into Radiation Tech, with over +1700 applicants!!! So, I assume it's just as hard, even harder to get into Rad Tech over here considering a higher amount of people apply, and so few get in.
I didn't do a "pre-nursing" major to be precise, but I completed a "pre-health-science" college program prior to getting accepted. Pre-Health is a program that prepares you to get into a "health care" field of your choice, so it is more broad. I am not sure if a pre-nursing major will help you get into Rad Tech or of it mainly geared towards nursing... I also had a 3.95 GPA (out of 4.0) in the program.
Good luck to you Roso, and let us know if/once you get in!
