After being a RN and earning your Master's, does anyone regret NOT going to medical school? and why? thanks!
the only thing I'd like about it is someone calling me doctor. and I cant think of a worse reason to dedicate that much of my life to that.
I regret not going to med school and becoming a doctor since that is what I wanted to be since the age of 8. I still think I would have made a much better doctor than nurse, although I am a darn good nurse without question. I still may return to college and become a doctor if I can gain entrance into a medical program at the age of fifty. I'd love to give it a shot! :)
I thought about going to med school, but I want a life. I do not want to live to work, I want to work to live.
It seems to me that CRNAs end up with more money in the long run. If you want the doctor title, get your PhD. It's only a couple more years. Leslie.

CRNAs can make just as much money as a family practice doc. And they don't have to spend $250,000 getting their education. I agree with Alan, the thought of being called "Dr." is appealing, but that is a HORRIBLE reason to go to med school!
