"If you are going to go back to school, you should get a degree in something so you can earn $75,0000 a year. If you get this, you won't make any more money. It may qualify you to be an RT supervisor, but it doesn't guarantee you will get that job, nor that you will want that job."My wife is smart in this way. And she is right. If I were to go back to school, I would be better off going to be a nurse. They make way more money than we do, plus their profession is far better respected.
I'm not saying I'm going to be a nurse. I'm also not implying I hate my job. But, there is some degree of apathy present. It would be nice to do something different. But, to earn a bachelor's in respiratory therapy would not make me a better therapist nor would it make me more money. It won't even earn me more respect.
I would love to go back to school. However, I would rather do something other than respiratory therapy if I were going to do this. But what?
