I'm really glad you made this thread, I'm in the same boat trying to figure out what to do. Although, I still need to get my RN but I like to plan ahead lol.
Anyways, one thing that sways me to MDA is how lifespan is going increase probably in the future. Of course, it might seem silly to think about but it makes schooling more worth it if you're going to work longer.
I've been wondering, just how long are the weeks for MDAs generally? I've heard that they often work a lot of hours but never have found out how many. I've seen salary reports for locum tenens and the difference on there is about 100k, but if CRNAs are working 40 hours a week and MDAs work 60 or however many hours a week, it might balance it out a bit.
