Honestly, my opinion, I would say go for it!! I was a CST myself , did it for 4 years , loved it but decided to be a stay at home mom and now I'm going for my RN, It's better to get it done now because in the long run you make more money and you can also work in different areas whether it be at the hospital or a clinic or even at a school .. There's just so much more !! Plus , you don't have any children to take advantage Now!!
