    What do you hate about clinicals? Clinical will be like when you get a job in the hospital except you are on your own as far as how you do things and in what sequence. If you hate clinicals I think you have a hard road ahead, to get I to research or teaching you usually need some floor experience.

    Even with over abundance of NPs in schools, not everyone will make it in the real world as a NP. Some good and bad APNs will come out of good or bad schools. Some will become teachers, administrators or providers. They will weed themselves out. I wouldn't be too worried over it. Experience is key here!

    I believe both sides of the arguments are valid. I do find that nurses see much more how everything that doctors do affect the patient more than the actual doctor does. A doctor prescribes meds, the nurse administers and monitors the patient for 12 hours a day. A doctor sees a pt for about 5-10 minutes a day and relies on the nurses assessments and documentation. The doctor is very well versed in medicine and what meds go with what. A nurse learns this as she goes along. I feel both NP, and MD have a lot of to offer patients.

    I think this post should be directed to those living in Southern California. I know people who waited over 6 years to get into a ADN program. So it's like is the wasted time worth the cost? In the LA and OC area the average nurse makes 65-90 thousand a year to start... Is it worth 140,000 of education or wait 6 years? I would just get my education. The waiting game is a waste of money too. Working at McDonalds for 20-30 thousand a year is also a waste. West Coast has a pretty good rep in The OC, and I have worked with a lot of the LVN to BSN grads too. They are well prepared, mostly because I think the school has a 3 million dollar SIM lab where a manikin actually sweats!!! Anyway, if it's your dream and willing to sacrifice u plus go for it!
