Hello all! I've been randomly reading this forum for years, never really having any reason to jump on board but now I do... I've decided to finish my schooling and become a Nurse Practitioner for OBGYN!!! I cannot wait to get started and am looking forward to the journey ahead.
A while back I had read something (here maybe?) about Nurse Practitioners needing a PhD if they finish their schooling after 2014. I will be in that group and would love more information.
Does anyone here know if that is correct information? And if so, what PhD would be needed for Nurse Midwives/NP-OBGYN? I've found a Doctor of Science in Nursing, but nothing specific to obgyn.
Any insights there would be greatly appreciated- I tried searching but could not find a way to search the cnm board specifically and was swamped in posts completely unrelated to my questions here.
