Hello, I am looking for advice about changing from critical care nursing to angiography/radiology nursing. I currently work in the cardio-thoracic ICU. I've done bedisde nursing for 7 years now, critical care for 5 years. I think the change would be less stressful. Is there any of you that have made a similar change and was it the right decsion or not? The money would be about the same, but my shedule would change dramatically!! I've done 12hr pm shifts for 7 years.....the angio spot is Mon-Fri 0830-1700. Any advice is appreciated, thanks!

Nursing schedules are really very hectic. Whereas the radiology workers actually get a relaxation in terms of their shifts of work. The shifts are quite fixed and they need not work for extra time. But switching a career at this stage would be quite tough as you have already completed 7 years in nursing. But still there is a way. You can go for an online course in any field of radiology. MRI technician would be the best as there are few very good colleges providing genuine online education. These colleges are also offering the scholarships to the students.
