I'm a young practicing chiropractor that is thinking of starting a nursing degree, with aspirations towards being a nurse practitioner. While I love chiropractic, I would like to expand how I can treat patients by blending it with more traditional medicine. I believe that great things can be accomplished with proper diet, rehab, and correcting imbalances, but I also understand the need for some medications and interventions.
Using the almighty search function, I found this great thread already... http://allnurses.com/general-nursing...ng-497155.html
And was wondering if anyone on the board that holds both degrees has successfully blended both disciplines. My dream is to work in a hospital part time, and also in a private, sports injury practice. The hospital will keep me interested with patients constant varying conditions, and private practice will keep me rooted in musculoskeletal. I like having the ability to diagnose and come up with my own treatment plans.
Do you think I am going the proper route? Any insight and advice about your experiences with/as a nurse practitioner is appreciated
