    I'm an adult and pads CNS and function as an APN so my salary is in line with mid-level providers.

    Much will depend on where you live, what type of facility?

    oh this is a good question and would love to hear your insight

    I live in Arizona. I start my masters in January to become a CNS. Down the road, I would love to work in a hospital on a CVICU or Telemetry unit!
