Nurse practitioner , they get paid a ton


I would rather work to earn my money and not have to deal with people's medical issues and death.


Really? My friends who went into nursing all work about 50 hr weeks on the regular (12+hr shifts 4 days per week). This actually doesn't sound like a normal nursing gig.


Nurse Anesthetist make a grip as well; I believe slightly more than a nurse practitioner.


How much debt is she graduating with?


She got $60k in debt , going to school for 6-7 years while working so took her longer than normally would be


Screw that. Better off with no debt and more time auditing.



Damn. Nurse practitioner?

How long was she actually in school? 4 years gave me my 150 for the CPA.

PwC 3 I'm assuming you are not in audit making $150k?

I think he meant 150 units?

150 hours for my license. That's why I was asking how long she was in school. If she was in school 4+ years more than me, then I would have been making 55K+ for 4 years while she was going in more debt (theoretically)

I took a PE interview this week and the Ctrl/funtcion/alt buttons didn't work on the laptop they gave me for the model. What's your interview horror story?
