Now I get why experience means everything yet nothing - page 3

Now I finally get why nursing experience can prove invaluable in NP school, yet actually means nothing. It appears that nursing experience gives a valuable base from which to relate but does... Read More

    I don't think PA school is very easy as it's full time difficult program.

    .

    From what I've been researching...it's very, very difficult.

    The PA mantra is, "75% of med school in 50% of the time."

    Just FYI, the direct entry NP program at Vanderbilt requires a BSN, not sure about the others...and their Neonatal NP program requires 2 yrs experiance, not sure about the other NP programs that they offer there.

    I have been trying to do research on which school I want to attend, but I am coming to realize I have to call and actually talk to someone in order to get all the details

    Moral of the story,

    THOUSANDS of NP's graduate every year and the ONLY bedside nursing experience many have is what they get in clinicals via their schooling.

    Thats the way it is.

    (they do very well bTW, with 6 figures to start being common, dependent upon geographic location.)

    I am going to shut up now because anyone who still does not get it, is not going too get it and I have no more energy to direct toward this endeavor......

    Wow, rediculous. Thanks OP, I really liked your original post because I was going back in forth between whether to get more bedside experiance before going into an NP program, but I am not wanting to loose a lot of time because I am not exactly a spring chicken, you know what I mean. But as great as the first few posts were, as usual with Allnurses, the thread has turned into a fight.

    BCGradnurse -

    I'm sorry for offending you with my post. I probably should've explained better what I meant. I was around when the nurse practitioner movement started. Back then it was the years of experience as a nurse that prepared one for a unique and expanded role as a practitioner. It has evolved since then but the name has stayed the same. What does the inclusion of the word mean to you if you've never worked as a nurse, though? I don't ask that out of hostility. I'm just curious.

    To Nurse56,

    Little schools such as Vanderbilt, Columbia University, Yale, Duke, Case Western, Johns Hopkins and many many more have direct entry or RN-MSN programs that require zero bedside nursing experience....

    Your beef should be with the NLNAC that sanctions these programs.
    I'm currently deciding between PA vs ANP route. I've been an RN for 19 years.

    It just torques me off that I spent all these years in the trenches... and for what?

    My pleasure I am glad someone found them to be useful. There are hundreds more top schools that have such programs.
