Anyone enrolled in DNP program and doing NFLP with extra education classes? What schools? Online? Seems these programs are a little hard to find, easier for PhD (although not online for PhD so much)
I am a FNP now, want to continue clinical practice full time for now and move into teaching with part-time clinical practice so I *think* DNP is the way to go, but am interested in NFLP to fund my education. Where I live, there are lots of teaching opportunities in the smaller universities (not the big research ones in the state, second tier state schools) for DNPs.
I am torn, as it seems many are on this forum and others, about whether or not to just go for the PhD if my ultimate goal is teaching, but I sort of don't want to spend an extra 1.5-3 years in school beyond the 1.5-3 years it will take me to earn the DNP. And if I'm being honest, I'm a little scared of a dissertation and years of research leading up to it.
