Was It worth it? After working on the floor for 18 years and seeing new nurses come and go, the question was not should I make the move but more like when will I make my move. Working for a hospital meant long hours, rotating weekends, working on Holidays and zero autonomy. At the end of a busy shift, you still had to give report to an on coming nurse with an attitude. As a NP, I work from 9 to 430 in a nice quite office with a view. The NP program was intense but I would have paid double for this opportunity. So if you are on the fence about this decision, think of your future and go for it.
