I'm a college student going into sophmore year as a nursing major. I was planning on becoming a CRNA, probably for the wrong reasons (thought it was dope I could make 200k average with just masters degree).
I just learned last week that they are requiring a doctoral degree now starting 2025, and it shocked me. I'm not interested in being in school until im 32 (assuming I work as an RN for the average of 3 years and my DNAP takes 4 years).
I have no idea what other careers I could go into and im extremely lost and I've felt sick since then. Any advice? I know that there are BSN to DNP program that exist, is this a thing for DNAPs as well?
