  • What's your idea of good money??? I was in school for a long time,and had enough credits for a bachelors degree. Because of circumstances, I went to a Community College and studied Surgical Technology. I got my national certification and I make $24/hr. I know it varies depending on the city you live in. My program was 9 months....some people take the program at these private medical colleges. Get out of school spending all their money on loans, etc....I paid less than $2000 for the program.

  • I hear dental hygienist can make good money. I've heard of some programs taking people less than two years to complete.

  • Don't base your career choice solely on money. Find something that you really love. Don't know what? Well, what would you volunteer to do? What would you do just for the satisfaction of it? Whatever that is, look into careers in that area, then educate yourself accordingly. Everyone is so worried about where to make money, but you can be happier doing what you love in a little house with those you love than doing something day in and day out that you dread because you're trapped by a bunch of bills for things that have no real value.

  • I dont' think everyone says they only care about money..maybe she's ina situation where she needs to make some decent money...we were just answering accordingly. I don't even work so what I make an hour is useless...and dental hygiene school is VERY competitive to get into. just FYI..some people are on waiting lists for years to get in, but yes, you make excellent money if you are able to complete it.
