It's me again...I know I keep posting questions, but I always research this first before posting. Since it is important I start working as soon as possible, yet I still would like to be a nurse, I have decided to look into becoming a phlebotomist here in tulsa so that I can get on with a hospital with tuition re-imbursement for college. So even though it might take me 6 freakin years to be an RN, at least I would bringing some much needed income into my house being a phlebotomist. How much are they paid here in tulsa? I heard it was almost as much as a medical assistant. Is this true? The class hourse are perfect at CCC Friday and Saturday 9-5, so I wouldnt need much daycare. This also might give me a look into what nurses deal with as I would like to work in a hospital setting. Does this sound like a good idea?
