If one were to be accepted to a MSN and a DNP program, which would be a wiser choice?
All things considered, MSN prepared CRNAs will be grandfathered in after 2025, this leads to one to get a MSN over a DNP due to the time restraint, it is cheaper, and less loans and interest on the loans. Furthermore, it has been seen that DNP programs have a lesser pass rate than MSN pass rate, which again could be due to the fact that you have to retain information for 6-8 months longer. And, finally if a point ever comes that MSN CRNAs are mandated to get a DNP, most employers will reimburse your tuition.
What are your guys' thoughts on this? Which one would you choose if you were starting school next year or before DNP becomes a mandate in 2025?
