How much Network Administrators Make? Is it a good satisfying job?

So i was thinking about becoming a Network Administrator. I found a great technical college in Sacramento (where I live) that offers IT - Network Administrator training. But I really need an insiders opinion. Whats the Job Like? Is it stressful and boring? is it interesting and satisfying? Also how much do they make? (entry level, 5 years and 10 years exp) thanks!
