NP vs. PA

  1. I am an RN student, and have always intended to continue my education after I graduate to get a BSN and then become an NP. However, now that their is a doctorate degree to be required to be an NP, I have begun to consider becoming a PA instead. I am trying to find out what the pay difference is between NP and PA and also what the main differences are between the two in order to help me make my decision.
