Lauren in Joliet, Illinois. That's a very inspiring story. I'm leaving the corporate world as an ad executive to become a PTA. I'm so excited to start a career that I actually get satisfaction out of.

Here's all the PTA schools in Calif. J in Jordan, Montana. Hey, I am also a Dental Hygienist looking to go back to school for P. I am so glad to see that I'm not the only one burn out and feeling limited. Dental offices seem to be worse than the job itself to me. I feel critiqued and kinda just "watched over" every day. I wish you all the best and let me know what you decide. I recommend going to work for someone who respects you and you feel more comfortable with. One of the differences is PTA build relationships with their patients, where as Dental Hygenist keep patients mouth full.

I have wanted to get in the Sports Medicine or PT field since High School and always felt like there was too much going on in life to go back to school. I'll also be sacrificing 5 weeks of vacation, good benefits I'm coming to terms with all of that, but we still are working out whether we can actually take on MORE debt, instead of getting rid of it.
My husband told me that I picked a really crummy time to want to fulfill my dreams If I can somehow work it out financially, I think I can sacrifice for a couple of years in order to be a happier mom and wife I've visited 3 PT environments in the past week and have gotten great feedback about the salaries and demand in my area.

I hate to make it about a few thousand dollars, but when you're looking at giving up an entire salary in the first place, it becomes very important!

Making more money would be great but I'd rather do something that means something and that I enjoy. I need to visit some PT environments myself. I have a contact of a PTA that works with the local schools so I plan to go with her and then a few other places. I'm going to give myself a couple weeks to think and research and then if I decide to go for this, I'm going to start the pre-req classes too.
I'd love to stay in touch and see how you're doing since it seems like we're starting from the same point.
