I am seeking some input regarding a personal, professional dilemma. It is about the pros and cons of PhD vs. ND.
I had a long post drafted, with my personal story, but I decided it would be best to just get to my question.
To those of you who are faculty in academic programs, do you work with any NDs? How are they treated? Are their contributions respected? How do you see their opportunities for advancement? I know there are not many programs offering the ND, so is it considered "strange" or questionable?
I am a full time educator, and teaching is where I aim to stay. But my current work situation is in a non-traditional setting. I don't want to burn any bridges, in case I want to work somewhere else in the future.
Thanks for any and all input.
