Dear, In reply to this question, How much does a nurse practitioner make a year or an hour compared to a registered nurse.?, I can tell you that this site http://asknursingonline.com might help you in your situation As you asked; "a nurse practitioner is a step below a doctor and to become a nurse practitioner i need a masters degree. i really want to become a nurse practitioner because i love to help people and i know that while someone is under my care i know they will be alright. also at the same time i need a nice paying job to support my three kids and husband and myself." it may help you. Good Luck :)
Apparently you are still a student. You will probably need to become a citizen to get a job. I don't think anyone would want to hire someone who would only be able to work for a limited amount of time. On the other hand Nurse Practitioners are in great demand all across the US.
CRNA or Nurse Practitioner???
I think it's silly to try to decide before ever going into the field what you want to end up doing. It's great to try to get some ideas, but you'll find once you start working that what you thought you wanted might not be what you expected at all. Always stay flexible. Having said that, sure CRNA is going to be the obvious answer for people who base everything on salary. But CRNAs have an enormous amount of responsibility and legal liability. One lawsuit can ruin your life. If you even make it that far - just getting into a CRNA program is darn near impossible unless you're among the creme of the crop, with a GPA above 3.75, at least 3-5 years of experience working in an ICU environment, and you have proven yourself to be a leader in your workplace and your community through volunteering, etc. They only take the superstars into their program. Once you're in, it's pretty much impossible to work, because bewteen classes, clinicals, and studying, you will be putting in 60hr + weeks for two years straight. Nurse Practitioner programs are also about two years, but it isn't as intense of a program. Pay will not be as good as a CRNA, but programs are easier to get into. Your practice might be a lot less stressful. You might be fortunate enough to get a M-F 8-5 kind of job, whereas with a CRNA working out of a hospital you will work rotating shifts and some weekends and holidays. Just focus on one step at a time. Get your RN. Work a few jobs to get a feel for where your preferences lie before trying to narrow it down on what you want to do. I made the same mistake. I wanted to go to nursing school because I wanted to be a Certified Nurse Midwife. Now that I work as a labor & delivery nurse, I have been cured of that nonsense, lol. I was actually very disappointed in myself that I was foolish enough to believe I could make that kind of decision without ever having worked in the environment. Ignorance was bliss. Reality is always different than what you'd imagined. Good luck with your pursuits!
I am a nurse and am half way through medical school.Let’s separately discuss classes and clinicals.The main difference between a class in nursing school and one in medical school is the time input. Honestly, I studied a lot of the same content in the two degrees. Medical school just went into a bit more detail on things. Furthermore, there are just a LOT more class hours (think “ credit hours “) to finish the basic science portion of medical school. If somebody is smart enough to do well in nursing school and are willing to put in some effort/time they could also do well in medical school. The actual learning isn’t harder, there is just more of it (a lot more).Clinicals/Clerkships are more distinct. My nursing clinicals weren’t to bad, give some meds, update care plans, help with daily care. Medical school clerkships are INSANE challenging. Every day you’re pushed to the very edge of your comfort zone. You need to learn fast, organize well, manage time, have good professional skills. You’ll be putting in many 60–90 hour weeks (especially on surgical specialties). So the clinical aspect of medical school is a lot harder than nursing school.To summarize: medical school classes are about the same difficulty as nursing classes. But there are a lot more of them and you’re taking many at once, so the time input is MUCH higher (20–30 hours of class per week + studying vs 5-10 hrs class per week + studying). Medical school clerkships are MUCH harder than nursing clinicals and require a very dedicated and driven person to excel.

If I complete a 2-year Nursing degree, what can I do with it, what is the average annual income?
Associate degree RNs can do just about any of the same things a BSN grad can do. In terms of regular staff nursing positions, a BSN will not earn you a significant amount more money - my hospital pays about $1 per hour more for BSN grads. The difference between an associates degree and BSN is that you take many more general education courses, and the extra nursing content you get revolves around history of the profession, theory, care modes, leadership, research, and in most cases you will get Public Health only in the BSN program and not the associates program. You are then eligible to be certified as a Public Health Nurse. Since you will have a more well-rounded education and emphasis on leadership with the BSN, you will be better off in the long run if you plan on moving up the chain and going for leadership positions in management or administration, or if you decide to continue on for a master's degree for something like Nurse Practitioner, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Nurse Educator, etc. Annual income depends more on where you live in the country and your experience level than anything else. Keep in mind that areas of the country that pay very well often have a much higher cost of living - especially California and the East Coast. Generally, as a new graduate RN working in a regular staff RN position at a hospital, you can expect to earn anywhere from $45-$55k per year to start. **Edited to add: A BSN will have just as much patient contact as an ADN if they are both working as staff nurses. The amount of patient contact has nothing to do with your degree but rather the job you hold. BSNs are better able to get those other positions which may be more administrative and have less patient care. But these days, especially in larger metropolitan hospitals, to get into the good administration and management positions you practically have to have a master's degree.
Doctors vs Nurse Salary?
No, dollar for dollar the vast majority of those of us with an RN license do not even come close; the average annual salary of an RN in the US is $66,530 that is only a fraction of what the average family/general practitioner made last year ($168,550) or surgeon ($219,770). Plus the job security of physicians is a million times better for doctor. They can screw up all the time and be unlike, but for nurses it is not the same. Nursing is falsely given a really great reputation: there are lay offs, hiring freezes and fluctuation is the market just as there is with any job. There is a much greater doctor shortage than there will ever be a nursing one. Why do you think that the role and abilities of nurses have expanded so greatly; it is because their aren't enough physicians to do all of the things that used to be a part of their job description, so nurses have to do it. Perhaps having a higher than average experienced nurse wage in a higher paying urban area working two full time jobs and one PRN you could make as much as a young fresh out of school zero experience MD, but honestly what kind of quality of life is that working 24/7. Even the vast majority of Advanced registered nurse practitioners don't even come close. The one exception is CRNAs, or Certified registered nurse anesthetists, whose job it is to put people under anesthesia for surgery and essential keep them alive. Salary's tend to start a north of $100,000 depending on where they live and experience; with the average being approximately the same as private practice physicians in a lot of areas of the country. They pay very high liability insurance due to the nature of their job and they have to have completed a BSN, four-year nursing degree, with several years of experience in ICU and critical care, then return to school of a minimum of at least two full time years of study (like completely all consuming, unable to work, full time study) to get a masters degree in that specific area.
