Yale or Case for Direct-Entry? NP vs. PA?

  1. Hi All! I'm considering applying to direct-entry graduate programs in nursing. I am fairly familiar with Case's program b/c I met with an admissions counselor and toured the school. I'm impressed with both it, as well as what I've read online about Yale's program. Can anyone share info about the competitiveness of getting into Yale's program? Also, does anyone know job placement info for either Case's and/or Yale's programs?

    A side question - as APN's, do you feel you command more respect and autonomy than PA's? I see both fields graduating highly competent and qualified healthcare professionals, but it seems, despite different state legislature, that APNs OVERALL have more freedom and seem to work more alongside physicians than "under" them. Any feedback?

    Thank you so much for your time!
