when I started in western Michigan in 2007, my beginning salary was 15.36/hr, with time and a half for overtime (that's mainly when called in) and double time and a half on holidays. it ended up being over 30,000 my first year. the problem is, surgical technologists aren't recognized for the hard work they do... we're basically the next guy up on the OR hierarchy from those doing janitorial duties. get an RN degree. you'll make twice the money and do half the work.

How do you become an ultrasound technologist?

Firstly you must do a cousre at university called "radiography" which is a 3 year course that involves the study of X-rays, MRIs etc. You must then specialise in sonography. That answer is not accurate. You do not need to major in radiography to be an ultrasonographer. There are programs out there that are specifically ultrasound majors. They are usually 2-3 years in length. WWW.SDMS.ORG is a very helpful site for sonography schools in various states.
