A post master's FNP can be completed in 1 year, so I've been considering it just to switch it up every once in awhile. When you work at smaller hospitals having FNP also opens up doors to do things outside of the perioperative arena depending on the state. Odds are I'll stay in California at a level 1 or 2 trauma center in an area with no shortage of healthcare providers, but it's something I've always wanted to do.
I wrestled back and forth between NP and CRNA prior to CRNA school, and while I'm glad I took the route I did, I wouldn't mind doing urgent care work on the side to stay clinically sharp and use a different part of my brain. That, and I have a connection who owns an urgent care and they said if I got it I could pick up a day here and there to help out, which would be perfect for my situation.
I still wrestle with DNP vs DNAP, PhD, FNP, MBA, or a combination of them. Ideally, I wouldn't mind being a PhD, FNP, CRNA, MBA, haha. At what point is enough though...I probably won't go back to school for another couple of years. Odds are ill get a DNP (20k) first and then go for FNP (15k) or MBA (7-11k). A hard science PhD (90k) sounds nice, but there's just too much research involved.
