Ok, I got an advanced Non-nursing degree, a Doctor of Divinity in Missionology from a Theological Seminary.
Now, I'm not the best person to answer this question, because I do use my NP in the mission field, however, to a very different skill set.
I CANNOT EVER IMAGINE BEING TIED DOWN BACK IN USA TO A CLINIC OR HOSPITAL SETTING, . . .
I love the change I made!!!! I love working in different countries, out of my comfort zone, and especially outside in fresh air. I would have never been able to do this had I not took that leap of faith and jumped. YOU WILL OBTAIN NEW PRICELESS SKILLs, and the fact that you have done clinical, medical-surgical, and bedside nursing, YOU WILL ALWAYs HAVE THOSE SKILLs TO PUT ON YOUR RESUME, . . .
WITH THE EDGE OF DOING SOMETHING NEW AND DIFFERENT. CHALLENGES ARE APPLAUDED, NOT COUNTED AGAINST YOU.
BOSTON SAYS FOLLOW YOUR !!!!!!!!!!!!!
