    RT was something I had heard a girl in my Bio105 course say she decided to take b/c the RN program fills so quickly. I decided to check it out and after watching videos on youtube and reading as much as I could about the field, I decided it wasn't a bad idea. Especially since I had all my prereqs complete for RT. I have 17 points out of 21 for the app and hold a 4.0 GPA in all my prereqs. The program still shows as accepting apps till Fall or the program fills, so I'm hoping to hear something this week.

    I've read on this site that RTs that went from RT to RN were better nurses because of their time in RT. They are better able to assess breath sounds and have a better understanding of the respiratory field in general (obviously). I'm hoping to finish this and get on somewhere that will help pay for my RN or BSN in the future.
    Good luck!!

    Well, I have been accepted for the RT program!!! I am so excited to start this Fall! I'm hoping to be able to do this for a few years while working on my RN. From what I see now (which doesn't say what it will be in 2014), it looks like there are several positions available around here for CRT and RRTs, so prayers that it will be that way or better by the time I graduate.

    Best of luck to all and hope to hear more from members on their experiences with this field as well as nursing.
