I just fininshed NP school, passed my test and currently working, however I cant afford to stay an NP, I was an agency ER nurse for 5 years making at least 80,000-90,000/year because of overtime, night shift diffs, etc.,, but now, I make only 74,000/year(because if have no experience) I have more expenses, because of grad school loans. So to me I am not sure what to do, looking at the overall salary for NP's is( max) 90,000/year. Looking at the CRNA seems worth it, doing what you enjoy(advance nursing) with the compensation. However my dilemna is do I really want to start over, take another, delay starting a family again( I delayed for np school). Do you guys think that a CRNA program would accept my science courses, I mean I just graduated in Dec 2006. Well overall some advice, should I suffer through the low pay and supplement with another job, or go back to school?
