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 :)

Degree towards Radiology Nursing…?

I should start off by saying that my mom was a nurse. Since high school I’ve wanted to study towards my business degree. Now, things have changed and I want to pursue a degree towards Radiology Nursing. If you’ve gone to school for the same thing can you share your experiences? From the work load, hours of classes and labs to the joys of your job in that field.

thanks :)
Forgot to add this… How broad is this field? Are these nurses cross trained with another field or nurse? What kinds of degrees can a person hold to work in this field?
Rad Tech – I do want to work more with X-rays, MRI’s and such. I’m glad you answered my question to the extent that you did.

Question regarding radiology?

So, I was trying to look up radiologist jobs, or xray techs. I know there are a lot of certificates, would the first one be a radiology tech certificate. Also, is the certificate still okay, instead of an associates? .

Radiography to Radiology?

I am really interested in becoming a Radiology Therapist. However, the only school in my area that offers something close to this field is Radiography (I’m in Virginia, Hampton Roads area). If I pursue Radiography can I use this as a stepping stone to become a Radiology Therapist? If not what steps do I need to take? I am willing to relocate to another state to become a Radiology Therapist within reason. Does anyone know of an accredited school in Virgnia (preferably the AART) that I could attend for Radiology Therapy? Any information would be great! Thank you!

Radiology tech or Physical Therapist Assist.?

Im 33 live in El Paso Tx, currently working a full time to support my family. Im thinking of going back to school to better my financial situation and get a decent degree.

Radiology Technician?

I just had some questions about being a Radiology Technician. I am going to Mesa Community College in Arizona right now so I can get 4 science courses out of the way so in a year I can go to Pima Medical Institute for Radiology, if I’m accepted. After going to Pima I would then go on and specialize in CT and MRI.
I just wanted to know what are some of the other tasks that you do daily, other then taking the actual x-rays? Would you recommend a hospital, imaging center or a doctor’s office for a place of work? Do you work closely with the Radiologist or are you mostly on your own while he is with patients?
I am just trying to get a feel of what life would be like. I think this area would fit me best of all the areas I could work in. Any information and tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
ALSO! Please, if you are NOT in the medical field, I would rather you not answer. I would like actual Radiology Technicians, Radiologists or other doctors or nurses to answer. Thank you.

Radiology Assistant?

I’m registering for classes tomorrow and I was thinking about majoring in Radiology and getting a bachelors degree as a Radiology Technologist and continuing my education to get a masters degree in radiology. I can’t decide whether to major in graphic design or radiology. I know radiology will pay more than graphic designers, but I’m 26 years old and I’m not sure if I should pursue a degree in radiology especially since I really don’t know anything about biology. I’m fairly decent at drawing, but graphic design is kinda intimidating because you have to be a really good designer to get into the good money.

What would you do in my situation?

Sonography or Radiology?

I have decided to go back to school for one of the two. Would it be better to go for Radiology and then get certification in Sonography or vice versa? I have a B.S. in Psych with a minor in Biology. It doesn’t seem to be doing any good. I also thought about doing Direct entry to get my M.S.N. I not really sure that I want to do nursing. I want to be in the medical field, but I don’t know if I want all the “extra stuff” that comes with nursing. One of the above two seems more laid back. Any suggestions/comments would be appreciaited.

Radiology, College Help?

I would like to become a Radiologist, X-rays and such. And I know that I can get a degree that is designed for this career. i can also get the job training from a hospital of Trade/Tech school which is usually a 2 year program. Also the school i would like to go to doesnt offer the degree designed for radiology because its a small private school, but it does have a very strong biology program.

So my question is, if i go to my prefered school and get a degree in biology, would i get enough information to then go to a trade/tech school or a hospital to get my training for radiology.
Because i am worried that the Biology degree would be to general and not focused enough on the human body.
And if you are a Radiologist what did you do for education? and do you think my idea will work?

I want to go to school for radiology, what are they called?

This is all new to me so please no rude comments.
