Hello my lovely nurse mates!
I'm about to graduate with my BSN, after which I'll apply for MSN degree (possibly international health or public health) But, eventually I'd like to work abroad and volunteer my skills not just as a nurse but actually become a medical doctor. Does anyone know how long does it take after any MSN specialty degree to go through the medical school? Where would I start? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
check out forums for pre-meds... search their forums or ask the questions there. Just remember that your grad school GPA will not be calculated in your undergrad GPA, which is what med schools use for their statistics. So yes, an MPH will help... if you already have undergrad GPA that is close enough to their averages. At least I remember this being the case 5 years or so. Osteopathic schools are usually much easier as far as gGPA and MCAT is concerned. I believe the web site, mdapplicants.com, gives good user posted statistics. Just remember, 4 years med school, and 3-6 yrs residency... until you start getting paid enough to pay off your loan, but if is what you really want, go for it.
