I've wanted work in the medical field since I was ten. At first I thought surgeon, ER doc, or psychiatry but was discouraged by the costs and length of medical school. Instead, I became a hs science teacher. I left a crummy job in a crummy economy (one I graduated into mind you) and I know I cannot return to teaching because my heart isn't in it. I would like to become an NP but I know the market for RN's etc is crap. So is the market bad for NP's too?
