Hello Fellow Miscers,
I'm kind of stuck between the career choices of a dietitian and a nurse. I have a Bachelor's in Nutrition, so all I would need is to be accepted into a Registered Dietitian internship program (10 months long) which I have been rejected to two years in a row now. To obtain a Registered Nurse credential I would have to be accepted into a BSN program which can be only 15 months in the accelerated version for people with degrees.
Nursing seems to be the much more lucrative choice and there is much more room for growth with advanced degrees. Dietitian seems to be more laid back, but the pay will reflect that. I think the only thing that is holding me back from nursing is the fact that I'm not sure if I'd be able to handle the actual job.
Its kind of uncertain unless I was able to do a nurse's job for a few days which I wouldn't be able to do until I finished school. Kind of ****ed up how you have to spend 40k to try out a job that you might end up hating. Not sure if cleaning up a man who shat himself would make me gag or laugh. Never really dealt with any sort of situation like that. Starting to think I should just suck it up and think of the money I would get for the tasks.
What does the misc recommend?
