Good question. There are lots of answers though, just no good ones.

As a student halfway thru my 2 year program, you guys are basically telling me what I feared from the beginning, that I AM WASTING MY TIME AND MONEY ON THIS CAREER PATH!

Please tell that's not what you are saying!!!

I'm not saying that. I still love sleep. It's changing, be aware of the market and avoid false expectations. I've met people that did 2 years of college and expected $20 to hook up pts and watch Netflix. Fools.

Still sounds like I would have been better off financially if I kept driving a truck. I was making $40-45K a year. sounds like I will be lucky, if I will be making $30K as a sleep tech!!!

I agree you should quit school and go drive your truck.

I have been in sleep since gawd was a child- there have been ups downs and right now is a down with a slight left turn. Hold your ground do not job hop- Keep up your skills get ACLS if needed KEEP it current. Just separating the wheat from the chaff.
If you are new to sleep find a place work hard get some exp- and try and get into a Hospital facility.
IMHO

I've been told to get my ACLS also and I scoff at it. I'm not allowed to push meds in my state which is what seperates ACLS from BLS so why bother?

ACLS will help you identify critical situations. Think of it as a tool. Greater understanding.
