I had this random thought and was wondering y'all's opinion...
It's not something that's real serious, a bit humorous even but intriguing.
What if nurses with their doctorates were considered N.D.'s
John Smith N.D. CRNA
or something like that.
My point is that physicians go to a school of medicine and are therefore called medical doctors.
Nurses go to nursing school( terminal) and are therefore called nursing doctors? It's not a means to try and be equal with a physican so much as it is a way for those who've gone above and beyond to obtain their terminal degree to let clients know they have and help reassure the public APN's aren't glorified technicians.
Or something like that lol
I don't intend to offend with this post, sorry in advance if I did.
