I was wondering if one or acouple of you would be able to respond to questions I have reguarding this profession. I am enrolled in a college Health and society class which is the lead class of the health and bioscience academy at my high school which I have been apart of for three years. A project in this class is a career investigation project. I have been interested in becoming a NP for some time and am currently applying to nursing schools
for my BSN; hence I have decided to do my project on the profession of an NP. A section of this project is an interview with a professional. If one or several of you could answer my questions it would be greatly appreciated. You can respond to the thread or send a private message. thank you
