whats better medical technologist or nurse?
Question by Daniel K: whats better medical technologist or nurse?
I cant make up my mind, although I’d rather work in a Laboratory (I think because its more scientific based thinking) I just can’t make up my mind. Is it just as easy to get jobs as a medical technologist than a Nurse? Any help would be helpful.

Depends on what your definition of better is. Becoming an MT is definitely quicker, as it can be provided by a hospital and is on the job training or just one semester of schooling. Becoming a nurse requires at least 2 years of schooling which has a higher initial cost, but you end up with a much higher paying job.
