I think it's concerning because it's an "easy" route. There are a lot of programs out there and they come in various forms from online to hybrid to strictly on campus. Admission criteria tends to be all over the place as well.
I think there should be some guidance especially in these students' decision making process because some have not carefully evaluated their goals and have no realistic expectations of the nature, job prospects, and the variability of roles that NP's have. The NP field should also take the lead on making entry to practice more difficult and selective.
Back when I was an ICU nurse, there were grumblings about the ICU being a revolving door for CRNA wannabe's. I felt that it wasn't such a big deal because the RN's were putting their time in by working at the bedside first and that the schools
still have a screening process and not every applicant got in. This does not seem to be the case with NP wannabe's.
