Nursing Graduate Back to School for Rad Tech..

by Fluxx Fluxx (New) New

Graduated with my ASNursing 2 years ago and still haven't taken NCLEX to get my license.. am now thinking nursing isn't for me and debating if I should go back to school to be a Radiologic technologist instead which I think I would enjoy more. I've heard of rad techs going to back to school for nursing but never nurses going back to school for rad tech .. if any of you have any experience with my situation please give me some insight :/

Nurse SMS, MSN, RN

Specializes in Critical Care; Cardiac; Professional Development. Has 10 years experience.

Rad techs make significantly less money. If you have never taken NCLEX and never worked as a nurse, why do you say you don't think nursing is for you?

Enarra, BSN, RN

Specializes in Ambulatory Primary Care. Has 9 years experience.

Also Nursing RN is way more flexible career wise than radiology tech which can only do one thing. And there’s a big difference I pay scale.

my thoughts would be study for NCLEX relearn all materials if need be and take the exam get licensed and explore your options. Best of luck
