Is there a rush toward this profession like in other health fields that may make it hard to find a job later or is it still relatively unknown? It will take me 3 years to complete my AS since I cannot apply until next year and need to complete pre-reqs. Since it is an AS in a limited field, I will have little options and my financial aid will run out to get a bachelors. Is this field going to be flooded?
Also, will the health care reform change anything? I don't expect to get paid that much, I probably will get at least 30K and I'm OK with that since I don't want kids and know I need more education to get higher wages, which I will probably do in the future. I just don't want to go to school in a limited field and then end up only getting 8$ an hour and have all my financial aid be used up making it harder to go back for my bachelors.
