This was a post I saw on Student Doctor Network...
If nurses want to practice medicine, train them as doctors
Clinical training hrs
DNP: 700 (offered online )
50% failed simplified Step 3
Yet, DNP's want to be called 'Dr', independent everywhere (outpt, inpt, ER), be equivalent to PCP's & have full hospital privileges
DNP residencies New!
NY Times story
Future of medicine?
1) Do true NP outcome studies
2) Pass institutional policies restricting 'Dr' title
3) Hire PA's & AA's not DNP's or CRNA's
