I agree, I definitely don't want to keep putting everything off solely for applications. I have really wanted to get more experience in the medical field, but it gets to be difficult without having a certification/license. I think that I would love being a nurse either way because I get to be in the medical field and work with patients directly. The only reason why I see myself looking at PA school rather than pursuing NP is because I have always wanted to get into surgery. I've had the opportunity to be in the OR to see a bunch of surgeries, and I fell in love with every aspect of it!
