I applied to and Duke's DNP after applying to the NP program. I had my interview for the NP ,that went rather well actually. I really enjoyed talking with someone who understood what I was talking about and was on the same page in terms of what I wanted to accomplish in as a healthcare provider. I have not heard anything from the DNP thus far. I would really like a positive result to the pain of waiting . Sometimes it seems like my life is suspended until the decision comes in the mail. I was proud and pleased with myself for having garnered an interview at such a prestigious school. I can not express how wonderful it felt. I have not begun to doubt my abilities but I am beginning to see the shadowy edges of doubt disappear with each mantra I utter extolling my belief in me and that I can do it . Something like how I lifted myself when completing my BSN, and MSN. I continue to feel as though "I could fly" !
