    As another DNP, I will agree that NP education needs streamlining. There are quality online programs and there are some that never even check on students. My program had faculty members evaluating each student onsite every semester. Like everything else in this world a student gets out what they are willing to put into a program. I know physicians MD and DO that I would not want to be seen by. I also know PAs and NPs that you couldn't pay me to see. Quality providers come in every type MD, DO, NP, and PA. Instead of comparing maybe become part of the solution and push for changes.

    It is ok for the kids to see you cry as long as they also see you pick yourself up and keep trying. Children need to know that it is ok to work really hard but come up short. It happens but it is how you deal with it that makes the difference. They will learn resilience from watching you work to pass the next time. Yes, it stinks to have to have life on hold and retest but life does not end.

    It absolutely is! I speak from experience. I had both the AANP & ANCC scheduled to hedge my bets. I failed the AANP and was devastated. I have 4 kids and this was a set back. I gathered myself and passed the ANCC. Then went back and passed the AANP the second time because I refused to be bested by it. You will pass. We put so much pressure on ourselves and inadvertently set ourselves up. Good Luck!

    Quote from BostonFNP
    1. Because research has shown better outcomes are associated with BSN+ degree RNs.

    2. Because of the nursing surpless, employers are afforded the ability to be picky about who they hire and have started to prefer it.

    3. Because of Magnet status. See 1 and 2.

    Why do you all of a sudden bring it up?
    In addition to all of these points, what happened to wanting to pursue higher education for self improvement? Why are nurses not aspiring to learn more and better prepare themselves? I am one of those who believes it is time to make the BSN the entry point to becoming an RN. Many people consider nursing a vocation type of employment. Most types of healthcare fields require a Bachelor's degree and it is time that we narrow down how to become an RN. Our field looks disorganized when there are still diploma programs, associate's degrees, and the BSN. Just my humble opinion so feel free to disagree.

    I absolutely despised floor nursing. I went back to graduate school. I would say 90% of the time I enjoy my new role as a NP in the hospital. Life is too short to be miserable. Make a change for your own mental health. Try case management, an insurance company, Infection control, or whatever else. There are options other than floor nursing or returning to school if those are not for you.

    I think you should go to loyno.edu and read over what is necessary for entry.
