    Neither isn't an option. I'd rather work at Target

    Obnurseheather, frankie here. i would be a np any day. why not build on the career you are invested in rather than start anew? If you are looking to exit nursing, PA might be the route to take, however there would be more limitations in licensing and practice. frankie

    Because while I may be chronologically and financially invested in nursing, I feel I may have lost my emotional investment in it.
