  1. There was a recent headline in the news, in the southern tip of Maine, about a person who overdosed on heroin laced with carfentanil and required 5 doses of Narcan to make him conscious. The dosage and route were not highlighted in the article, but still that is a lot! Apparently, the patient survived, but I can't imagine needing that much Narcan for an overdose.

    Student Loan

    Work as much as you can to accrue overtime hours, live a very frugal lifestyle, and dump all of your extra money into your loan debt. Unfortunately, you have a long road ahead of you. It might not be conducive to a social or luxurious lifestyle, but that is a good plan of attack. Hopefully you dont get burned out before paying off that debt.

    NP vs PA vs CNS

    I have little input on the CNS portion of your question as I have not worked with any or know any in my area. I will agree with the previous poster in that while the educational models are different, there is overlap between the functions of the NP and PA professions. I have worked with both NP's and PA's in the past and have had a good experience with both professions thus far. In regards to your comment about going to NP school for 4 years, that can vary on the type of program and your course load. There are still many schools offering the MSN option and you do not have to attend school full-time while completing an NP degree. This is a polar opposite to PA schools where PA schools are all full-time with more clinical hours than NP schools offering an MSN. You will be able to work while in NP school versus being a full-time student in PA school. This could help financially as you earn an advanced degree without taking a great deal in loans. Just my two cents.
  5. I am currently a nursing student who will be graduating this May with a BSN. I have a few years of health care experience as well as a few years in the military. I have recently been told that I may be deployed to the middle east for a year after graduation in May. I am excited for the deployment as I know I will have a job after graduation. However, I am concerned about finding a nursing job upon return to the country after being away for a year. Does anyone have any insight into this? I should mention that my military job is also medically related. Thanks.
