    Yes. It's called Med school.

    No need to be snarky. She just wanted information not your first born.

    I recently learned that there are some MD to RN programs. Recently worked with a nurse who had gone through one of those programs.

    The grammar in the description of the program is atrocious.

    Ya, you are right. I just posted that link in case anyone didn't believe me that such a program existed. The RN I worked with who did MD to RN attended a MD to RN program at a public Florida university but I don't remember the name of the school.

    Hi Everyone,
    Upon reading the posts, I found that Florida International University (FIU) has a program for foreign trained physicians to become nurses, but haven't seen anything for the reverse.
    "Rarely do you hear about physicians returning to school to become nurses, but 32 foreign-educated doctors recently graduated with a bachelor of science in nursing from a unique education program at Florida International University (FIU) in Miami."
    The full article about the program can be found at this url: M.D.-to-RN Program Offers Second Chance at Caring - NurseZone
