    As a perspective NP applicant, all of this is making me feel discouraged. I had doubts about becoming a RN and after graduation I had realized I made a mistake. Now, I fear making the same mistake all over again.

    If your goal is to be as close to a physician as you can without putting in all of the "hard work" then a NP track is not for you. If you love what you do/did as a critically thinking registered nurse and wish to serve a client population with advanced skills THEN go to a NP program. I can't begin to tell you how frustrating it is to me to see so many NP's and NP students going into advanced practice to get "away" from nursing. Newsflash: you can't be a NP in ANY state without an active RN license because an advanced paractice nurse is a NURSE! I'm quite proud of being a registered nurse and will be just as proud to be a registered nurse when I am certified as a NP.
