Hi all, I'd really appreciate any insight.
If any current/recent NP grads could PM me or share about their school experience, I'd be grateful.
I am a medical student in Chicago looking to make a career change and have been considering this for two years.
I've finished a year and am on a leave of absence. I was depressed, and one of our classmates and a resident died of an OD last semester. My own father, a physician, died of an OD when I was young. The school has ramped up suicide prevention measures in the wake of increased attempts, but this all seems very normal for the administration.
To keep things short, every day I've become more concerned about my own mental health in this setting and training, and how it has changed me.
This is not the only reason I think NP would be a better fit. I don't have enough space to go on and on. But I wonder how NP students have felt about their training.
I am applying to all the direct entry MSN Chicago schools
, and any others nationally that I have the prereqs for. I just feel very alone.
