    I graduated with my DNP 5/21/16. If I was starting today I would not go the DNP route. I agree there were way too many papers and fluff courses. I will never enter a patient's room asking what would Peplau or Orem think/do. Nursing theory is crap in my opinion. I spent way too much time in the 4 years going from BSN-DNP on a useless capstone I will never use. I did have over 1200 clinical hours but zero of those were in specialties. Most FNP graduates have no interest in primary care and go into specialties. I actually like the PA curriculum better and the PA students hit the ground running when I was in clinical. Faculty advised us that it takes the average NP student a year to catch up with a new PA. Why is that acceptable? No one has to agree these are my opinions and I wear flame resistant material well lol.

    As I stated in my original post, I have checked with the BON and was told there are no reasons why I would not be able to take my boards or practice as an NP
    Again, you may pass your boards but be turned down for DEA. Not having a DEA # will prevent you from writing controlled prescriptions. At the very least, you may spend a lot of time and money only to have great difficulty finding a job. Good luck

    I tell my children if they are interested in healthcare to be anything but the nurse. Pharmacist, PT, OT, PA, Physician, Respiratory, or whatever else. Nurses work long hours with little to no breaks or respect, often short staffed, and the buck ends with them. Ice not cold enough? Nurse's fault. 602 did not get Dilaudid exactly 2 hrs from last dose? Nurse's fault. No CNAs today so patients were in filth longer? Nurse's fault. The nurse is at the bottom of the hill with arms wide open and we all know what rolls downhill. I graduate with my DNP in May because I was so fed up with patient satisfaction & the Burger King drive thru mentality.

    When I was a floor nurse, I even trained the kids not to answer certain numbers. If I'm not at work don't call me in.

    You should check with you BON but I'm thinking it may be an issue. Also, you could be refused prescriptive authority and DEA privileges. Time to do your research.
