    thanks for the response and good luck with the job prospects....both routes still apppeal to me but there are times, like today, where the quality of life for the whole family has me thinking Nurse Practioner...do you see NP s being used more in NC in the hospital setting and did you gointo your MSN program knowing you wanted to go that particular tract?

    thanks for the responses.....I have shadowed some CRNAs and will meet with some NPs as well. I can look forward a few years and see me doing either role although quality of life with my family-both during school and in the job- will play a big role in my decision...still thinking....

    I've recently returned to nursing from a totally different career and currently work in a CCU/ICU setting. My initial plans were to look at CRNA school down the road. I have run into a number of NPs or nurses working on that degree and this now also has my interest. I have a family-and not exactly young anymore- and realize that CRNA school will mean moving from our current home whereas working on my NP could be done locally. I realize that they are very different paths in some respects but I am curious if there are others that had a similar thought process and what decision they made. Thanks for your input!
