I have a question for anyone with insight/experience/etc - does where you go to NP school (geographically speaking) affect where you can practice?
I know it would not legally affect it, but I mean, in terms of jobs. I want to practice somewhere with mild winters and frequent sunshine/warmth - somewhere in the southern half of the US, most likely. If I attended school in my home state (WA) or somewhere in the midwest/northeast, do you think I would have difficulty garnering employment right out of school that was far away?

No, your ability to relocate will make job hunting easier, since you're not limited to surrounding cities. I will say that the Houston area is pretty saturated with 5 nursing schools with NP programs and 2 with PA programs, so keep things like that in mind. Good Luck to you.
