I'm aware two years is standard, just didn't think the MS is worth the 80k+ that they charge. Looking forward to CRNA school, they had told me only two classes would transfer (only into their CRNA
Program, not Rush) which didn't seem like a huge incentive to put myself further into debt for. As far as adjuncting while in FNP school, that's actually a great idea if you are to find that opportunity. Most students just work in the ICU for the first two years and do pretty well, plus Rush pays a stipend. I just don't think the MS route, esp at a private university, is worth it if time and cost are important to you. You can arrive at the same end, advanced practice or not with far less debt if you play your cards right.
