I've just read on the NP thread that in the US, some schools
offer the NP program in 3 years without having to have a BN or a RN. As long as you have a degree, you can get into the NP program, with a few requirements of course. The first year, you do courses to complete your RN, then the next 2 years you do your Masters, to become a Nurse Practitioner. That's great news! The schools I've checked out in Canada, having a BSc., I'd have to do 3 years to get a BN, then 2 more to do the Masters level of Nurse Practitioner. Does anyone know of such a program in Canada, as in the US? That would certainly cut down on a lot of time, and enable a person to get into the work force quicker. Also, I was wondering what types of Nurse Practitioners are more in demand these days. It seems like the market is starting to get flooded with them in certain areas, but there seems to be still a demand and for a few years to come. Any ideas, pass along.
