nursing vs. occupational therapists

Nurses General Nursing


good morning.........for weeks now I have been reading these boards, this is such a wonderful site. I am so glad to have found all of you. This is my first time posting. I have been thinking about nursing school for the past couple of years. I decided to take all of my pre-reqs this fall and spring, with hopes of entering a state university Sept 2004. I know there is alot of competition, I hope with good grades, and some previous college credits with volunteering @ a cancer hospital might get me noticed. We'll see. My question is does anyone have some information about occupational therapists. Someone suggested this to me but had no info. I would like to have a backup plan in case I don't get into nursing school. Job descriptions, web sites, salary ranges, B.S. vs. Masters etc. etc. Thank you.

melgrek......We welcome you to place for all nurses to come and feel like one big family. :balloons:

We love on each other, sometimes we act like normal siblings and squabble (only means we love each other according to the reason I learned about "Why siblings squabble in the first place." :D) We get to vent our frustrations in a respectfully nice manner, and can really feel the warm fuzzies coming at us when we hurt, or experience a loss that we share here. I love this site, and am so glad I found it a couple years back.
