i really want to become an ultrasound technician but theres no schools in my area.
i was thinking about doing the online program @ cambridge institute of allied health in delrey beach.
or i also could do the distance program @ hilsbrough community college in tampa
they both are accredited
im just worried about not having a teacher there to physically teach me
& not getting the lab time from campus.
im also worried about getting a job with an online//distance degree.
& not learning enough from my computer.
should i just get an RN degree @ my local community college & then later on do the distance program for general sonography? that way potential employers will see i actually did go to a college. & that way i will have something to fall back on just incase my distance degree isnt taken seriously??
i actually just found out today cambridge needs you to come in after 6 months of home study,
but from what ive heard, some programs let you do all the book work at home and they set up a site at a local hospital for clinicals. you also must participate in alot of online conversation & lectures.
ive decided to get a degree for RN at my local university and after a few years of that im going to do one of these distance programs online. i just want to find the right one. i know that if i also have a degree in nursing and lots of medical experience then ill be taken more seriously. alot of workplaces arent too concerned about where you went to school at, you just must be certified.
i was thinking after i have my RN i can get a job as a nurse at an ob-gyn & wile im studying for sonography, hopefully ill be-able to set up my site there & get alot of hands on experience.
then maby work there…. hmmm??????
i know that now i cant move. but down the road when im ready to start sonography it may be possible.
