should i go into radiology or nursing?

i’m stuck between radiology and nursing. i’ve worked really hard on trying to get into the radiology program but i’ve heard so many things about not being able to find a job in that field and that scares me but i think it would be cool to take x-rays. i recently considered going into nursing because i think it would be interesting to see the things they see and i’ve always been interested in the human body..i am extremely torn between the two..if somebody could give me some advice or some information about their careers in either of the fields please let me know :)


  1. Probably radiology because you are more interested in that

  2. Simpson G says:

    Radiology is a department. It employs everyone from janitors to technologists to technicians to Radiologists.

    My guess is that you are interested in Radiologic Technologist. It’s job with lots of growth in the job market, but the competition can be fierce. With diploma, AA and BA/BS programs available, employers can ask for the best.

    Research the job market for each where you are. Call some HR people and ask them what the qualification of new hires *actually* is, not just the minimum requirements. I can list a job requiring only certification in x-rays, but actually hire someone with a 4 year degree who can do everything from shoot films to do ultrasounds, CTs, and MRIs.
