  • i've never been one, but went to school to school for it. I changed my mind when i found out how much the salary would be. I finished the course because i started it, but you will be nurse, receptionist and phlebotomist all rolled in one and you'll probably only get around 30,000/year. You're probably better off going for ultrasound school where you would start around 50,0000/yr. Nursing is great but the schooling is longer, if you wouldnt mind the schooling nursing is awesome. Hope everything works out well for you.
