    I just accepted my spot to Duke. After a lot of thought I decided Duke really is the best choice for me now, and the extra experience I will get working as an RN will only make me a better NP in the future, even if it takes a few more year. I can't wait to get to know all of you and be part of the Duke nursing community!

    Congrats, jbl!! I have your same thought process - I definitely want to work for awhile before doing any kind of MSN (not sure if I even WANT to do an MSN at all), so no rush there. I'm always surprised by people who have it all mapped out already, and we haven't even started the ABSN program yet! I get why people starting a second career might feel anxious to plan it out, but when you're 22/23, how do you even know for sure you want to be an NP, etc, if you have no experience? I have a feeling my ideas about nursing school and the areas I would like to work in are probably quite different from reality - looking forward to finding out for sure in a few months, ha ha!
