RN or Dental Hygienist… Which is better for a family life?
No Experience Necessary
Question by quite.inquisitive (:: RN or Dental Hygienist… Which is better for a family life?
I am currently a freshman in college, and I am majoring in education but I keep finding myself looking at other professions. Since about junior or senior year in high school I was torn between becoming a teacher, a nurse (RN), or a dental hygienist. Now that I am taking education classes, I have had doubts about if I should become a teacher or not. I want a profession that is fast-paced and always changing, but that also provides a stability and benefits for my family when I decide to start one. I know both professions make great money and nurses usually get plenty of overtime but I’ve also heard that they don’t get very good hours. And I’ve heard that dental hygienists often have to work parttime in 2 or 3 different dentist offices just to make 40 hours, since most positions are only offered as parttime. I am very invested in having children and starting a family soon in the next 5-10 years. My question is, would becoming a nurse or a dental hygienist be better for having a family?

Dental hygienist. You’ll have regular, primarily daytime hours. RN, you could wind up on just about any shift, and there’s no guarantee when you’d be home. Where family life is the primary consideration, hygienist would be the way to go.
