Vet tech OR Labor and Delievery Nurse?

I'm trying to decided which career I would like to go to school for and pursue. I'm very interested in both fields....
I just need others who are in these fields to give me the ups and downs of the job to maybe help me decide. Thanks!

  • I went to college to be a vet tech but I had to take a break for my family, I regret leaving very much, only one more year and I would be a registered vet tech right now, 3 years later I am still struggling with going back to school, I am now in the same boat as you wondering if I want to finish my training or go into human medicine and become a nurse, but I wonder if I would enjoy it as much as working with animals, Humans and animals are so very different, plus dealing with certain situations is a tad bit easier with animals than with humans, if you love animals even half as much as I do I say go for the vet tech and take it from there if anything it will prepare you for human medicine if you decide to change your mind and the experience is something you take with you always, just follow your heart

  • I was a Vet/Surgery Tech for years and I looooved it. The down side was that I wanted to make more money, and there isn't many positions to advance into. I needed more room to grow so I'm in school AGAIN for a RN.
