Hello. I am new RRT and have been in the field for little over a year and I love what I do and I take pride in my job. There are negatives into any career that you pursue, I hear nurses complain all the time. Personally, I love the fact that Respiratory is not constant bedside care. We get to experience other areas besides being confined into one unit or floor. Also, I love to intubate and extubate patients. Yes, weird! As far as negatives, I don't like the little respect I get from some physicians. I can be right near the vent during rounds and he or she will look for the nurse on is the patient able to be weaned! Crazy! Its a lot of job postings but its not easy finding a job. It took me 7 months and that was only become of who I knew. I have friends 2 years post graduation still searching. Its not impossible but its worth it!
