Hello! I graduated with my BSN in August and have heard conflicting advice as to when I should start a Nurse Practitioner program. The nurses I've run into recently have told me to start right away so I can graduate before the 2015 deadline, but most of my professors suggested that we wait to gain experience on the floor for at least a few years. Is it too early to at least start taking courses? Or should I not worry about all the extra schooling that will be required to become an NP after 2015? Thanks for any thoughts! Have a wonderful day!
