Got my CCNA... now what?

Hi all,
I just passed my CCNA test and I am anxious to get started on a new certification. Currently I work in a help desk like role but I would like to eventually work in network engineering/security.

I was contemplating getting my MCITP in server admin but I would rather stick with the Cisco stuff. I know my way around a server, or at least 2003, but I don't have certifications to prove it.

First question: Is it possible to self-study for the CCNP certification?

Second question: Is it worth going towards my CCNP before I get a job with my CCNA?

Third question: I would like to have a second concentration in security. I was thinking of getting Security+ but wouldn't it be better to go right for the ISC2 Associate certification? I do not have the years of experience to get the CISSP yet but I have heard that the associate cert will open some doors for me.

Thanks for your help all.
