I was just wondering if anyone knew anything about the admissions standards of these direct entry NP programs. I noticed that these programs have been showing up everywhere, which begs me to wonder "why?". is this to add address a sudden urgency of Nurse practitioners across the nation?
If this were the case, is it safe to assume that these programs would not be as selective as the traditional/second-degree/accelerated nursing programs
or even the ASN programs out there? There must be some "catch" to these programs of how you can just study for 3 years and walk into specialized healthcare role.
