RN v RT? Which Should I Choose?

If you're trying to find a career as a medical professional and you've whittled your choices down to RN vs RT and you just can't decide whether nursing or respiratory therapy is the right field for you,  it's time to look at your choices with an objective eye.

Which field will you wake up day after day and feel like you've made a difference without being overwhelmed with all the nastiness that comes along with both fields?  The patients are the same.  The diseases are complicated.  Registered nurses and respiratory therapists often work side-by-by side a strong working relationship during times of critical needs.  Both fields have their rewards.  Both fields have their draw backs. 

But, at the end of the day, I have just one answer for you to ponder if you're trying to decide on your education to become an  RN or RT?  Think poop vs PEEP.  This respiratory therapy ecard helps explain.  Any questions?   In addition, make sure to also checkout this best respiratory slogan ever in bumper sticker form.  I don't know the original author of this saying.  I heard these classic words from one of our respiratory therapists a few years ago.

"RN vs RT.  Why do poop when you can do P.E.E.P. instead?"
