A few reasons...I'd like to experience working with a larger variety of patients and conditions, vs being limited to musculoskeletal problems...however, I do a fair amount of diet, lifestyle, nutrition, blood test etc, with many patients...but I am still working in a limited scope of practice. I have not fully decided to pursue a NP or DNP, but its certainly appealing. I like working with patients as a Chiro, but the business side of the career is a constant grind. Its easy to focus on sales, marketing, management, etc, more than patient care...and I don't even own the business. I've done enough research, and have talked to enough nurses to know that the profession comes with its own hassles and headaches, but in the long term, I like the idea of more career opportunities and variety than what I would do as a Chiro the rest of my career.
