What cert should I go after N+?
Should I follow through with S+?
1776 is the answer to 1984!
That would depend on which career path you want to take, most people in these forums recommended the CompTIA trio as a solid foundation so getting a Sec+ cert would complete your CompTIA trio but you can also go higher depending on the career path you would like to take.

2019 Goals: [ICND1][ICDN2]-CCNA
I agree with Snow.bros. Personally, I'd go for the Sec+ just to top off the three core CompTIA certs and then decide which way you want to go...
A+, N+, S+, CCNA:RS, CCNA:Sec

Just joined today finally after viewing the forums for so very long. I too am asking myself the same question. I want to go up the CCNA-Security route, but also want to get my CompTIA Sec+, so it's one way or the other, but both are somewhat related.
I guess the answer to both our question is which cert do you think will help you most landing your next job / promotion? Which cert will be harder to obtain based on current knowledge and experience?
I just noticed also, I'm in your neck of the woods.

Goals for 2017:
Security+, CCNA = NOT DONE YET
Goals for 2018:
VCP6, PMI CAPM, ITIL, Six Sigma
... and when there is time:
MCSE, CCNA Security
If you want to go up the security path, get Security+ then go for CCNA and CCNA Security. The Security+ exam will give you a good foundation in security that will make it easier to absorb the CCNA Security material.
