Hi everyone. I am applying to 4 master's programs for January 2012. My question regarding whether I should go the NP route or the PA route is because I have recently been told that in some areas they prefer PA's because they get better reimbursement for their services. Is that true? If so, do you all think NP is the best way to go. I work with one PA who was a nurse first but in her original state, they did not utilize NP's in the area she wanted. Also, she came out as a PA making alot more than I will as a NP. Also,I currently make more than I will as a starting NP. So decisons are tough.
