I'm such a complicated/confused person, as everyone told me. I have finished my prerequisites for RN and GED last year. My last semester was a pain in the butt. I've struggled so much with my classes especially the Physiology one. That time it changed my mind, I was thinking of taking Respiratory Therapy career and I like the scopes of their job. The prereqs in RT program are almost the same in RN with additional Chemistry, Speech, and College Algebra on the list.
I was not satisfied with my prerequisite GPA at all for RN, it was bad...poorly bad
(I already have one repeat and did retake the class). By January 2010, I applied to various community colleges that are eligible to my prereq GPA for ADN, I ended up to 3 colleges. Also, I submitted my application for my RT at a different community college. My plan was to take the first career whenever which "letter of acceptance" mail will arrive first.
The same month, I was taking C.N.A program as my preference in nursing.
A week ago, a got an accaptance letter for RT program Fall '10 and I was blessed. But at the same time, I was eager and nervous about getting an acceptance letter for RN, too. I was scared because of my prereqs GPA for RN, either they put me to a lottery or they shred my application packet. I haven't called them to notify my application status yet (can I actually do that?). I'm starting to lose hope here.
What is the job market for RT now? is it low? not so much high demand?
What do you think.. should I go for RT or cancel it?
Any advices/suggestion, feel free to share!
I want your voice to be heard.
