Yes, as any job it has its ups and downs. It is one of the few degrees where you can find a job and have decent wages right out of school. Although radiology sounds interesting also, you could always work as an RN in radiology, although usually you can't work in radiology right out of school, only after you have some experience. The thing with nursing is finding what your niche is, which you will sometimes know right away or find after working in a few departments. I can say, now that I've found an area I like I can usually look forward to going to work.
