Which do you all think is better and why? A nurse practitioner or an occupational therapist?

I want opinions on what you all think about these two careers, what are the advantages and disadvantages, ups and downs, schooling, average pay, what type of people do it take to do each career, what skills or characteristics are needed for each career, etc. anything that would be helpful would be appreciated. Thanks.
