Hi everyone, I'm hoping I can get some answers on this topic. I want to go to graduate school and I'm looking into NP and CRNA programs. The NP program is much more favorable to me because it is much less intense than the CRNA program. I have 3 small children and I don't want to miss out on their lives for two years if I choose the CRNA route. My question is about the pay. I know it's about the work and not just the pay but it is a factor if I'm paying for school and taking 2-3 years of my life for it. When I look up the pay for RN's and CRNA's on indeed.com or salary.com, the pay is almost identicaldde26 I live in Florida. Can someone clarify this for me? It doesn't make sense.
