Hello all! I am desperately in need of some advice!I am a 21 year old male in Birmingham,Al that got accepted into a ADN program set to start in as little as 2 weeks! May 26 to be exact! Mom wrote a check for the tuition Thursday and everything!! My delimma is eventually I want go either the PA route. I also thought about CRNA. I'm wondering if I am leaning more towards PA would I need to go into my ADN program or do I need to give up my spot if my eventual goal is PA SCHOOL? I have several questions. 1) which career in you all's expert opinion is better? (pay, benefits, personal life/work life ratio) and number 2) which if you had the choice would u do? PA or CRNA? And 3) is it possible to be both a PA and a RN? Can I go through my ADN program and then follow up with my PA degree ?? And in terms of job prospects.. Which is better? Also would just getting my NP be just as good or better than the PA degree? Or vice versa? Help me!
Thanks in advance for your advice!
