Np & Crna

  1. hey. I'm having trouble deciding on what I want to do.

    I have applied to schools with an entry level in MSN for NP and other schools for CRNA. Yet, I have an interest in CRNA, but I have a feeling that I will be going to a school that has an entry level for being a NP.

    Any info on the pros and cons of being either nurse?

    Also, does anyone think its a waste of time studying for both? (as in being a NP and a CRNA?). I know its been done before, so if anyone is, what is your take on the subject, or anyone else's opinion on the idea?

    if anyone did decide to do it, or have gone through it, what route did you take? NP first, then CRNA? or vice versa?

    any advice would be great.

    thanks!

    no one has any more advice on being both a NP and CRNA?

    or comments on being one or the either?

    Hello, 2bnurse it,

    Here is a thread regarding ACNP and CRNA dual careers. Thread began in '04, but still current:
