Hi everyone! I wasn't sure where to post this, but I'm just curious if anyone on here used to be a respiratory therapist and is now an RN. I graduated recently and respiratory therapy is just okay, but I really want to be a nurse. I know its not an easy job, and the pay is slightly better, and the nursing field has its issues just like the respiratory field does. But I really like how nursing has a lot more opportunities and I want to be more involved with patient care.
Right now I have an associates in respiratory and I want to go back to school to get a BSRT later this year or early next year and then after working for a years I want to apply to an entry level MSN program. I figured that would be easier than trying to do an ADN program and then an RN to BSN program and then doing an MSN program.
