What are the main differences between a Nurse Practitioner and a Physician's Assistant in the day to day?

I'm a senior and planning on majoring in Nursing in college, but I have been trying to learn about whether I should get my master's degree in Nursing and become a CNP or whether I would prefer to apply to PA school. #medicine

Well I would say the day to day of the two professions do intertwine often in the hospital and practice settings. They do a lot of the same things- but their philosophies of health delivery are different. Remember nurse practitioners were once nurses and come from the nursing philosophy and background. Physician Assistants come from the medical philosophy, If you would like to become a PA though or really think PA is where you would like to go, I'm not sure nursing school would be the avenue especially since nursing really is its own entity and has its own science.
