    This is poor logic. Review your notes from research or stats class. Correlation does not imply causation.

    I would like to add that there are medical schools online as well. I have worked in the ICU with residents that completed medical school online...so how is NP schools being online a slap in the face to medicine??

    You have not worked with any residents that did medical school in the US online. You may work with those who chose not to go to lecture, but view it recorded via their school. Its pretty common knowledge that lecture attendance isnt required for lots of medical schools.I guarantee you though he took his tests at his medical school, and it was not an "online program".

    Yes it was online. And is online. 100% online. And they do their residency in the U.S. and practice in the U.S. Its a school that is not in the U.S. but they still practice in the U.S.

    Lol this is your example....handful of states that do not accept online education CA, TX, NY, Conn, GA, Ark, ND, Oregon, KA, FL. An i am sure there is more. When i say they dont accept this education, means you cant practice/licensed in these states.Sketchy school to say the least, these pop up everywhere. Have any real examples?

    It is a real example when the person is practicing as a MD in the US. Can't get any more real than that. And yes, lets get back to the issue. I was just replying to a post about NP online schools. There are many online medical schools. Just saying.
