Length time to obtain degree To receive an associate degree in nursing (ADN) I need to go to a Community College or a two-year college that offers a two- year nursing program. you can also earn a bachelor's of science degree in nursing (BSN) at a 4 year College or universities that offer a four-year nursing program.
Disadvantages Wages vary by employer, so some places could get paid less. For example, hospital nurses tend to earn more than nurses in doctors' offices. Registered Nurses a lot of times are stuck with all the clean up work.
Best Option for me Looking at both occupations information the best occupation for myself would be a Registered Nurse. I Have never been the best at mathematics and to become a pediatrician requires strong skills in mathematics. I also would be a little afraid to be complete responsible of the health of the patient. I would love to cure a patient but, if I don’t succeed I do not want to be accused by the patient that I am responsible for not curing them. I also, dislike the work a pediatric doctor has to deal with they are there for most of the time working and they have to work on weekends or odd hours if they are on call. The school’s that offer a pediatric doctor degree are offered in universities far from where I am located and I don’t have the same financial support I would have if I were to stay close by my family. Treasure Valley community college in which is located here in Ontario, financially my family can support me. The years to receive an RN degree can take up to 2 years. I love how its not a long school years to receive the degree. Plus, The requirements emotionally, physically and educational to become a nurse is something I believe I can do.
