Hi, I'm a recent college graduate having majored in Health Sciences and minored in Biology. Currently, I am deciding whether I should pursue being a PA or BSN and then NP. I like how the nursing route would probably be easier, as it would mean starting a BSN program in 2018, working for a year as an RN, and then attending an NP program. On the other hand, if I was to pursue PA, it would definitely be more competitive. I would have to take a few more classes and accumulate the clinical hours most PA schools
require. I know I want to be a mid-level provider over bedside care (RN). I like how PA is more medicine-based (NP is more patient-centered).
