    Wow, it's like you didn't even read my response. The thing about your statement is that it's INCREDIBLY PRIVILEGED: you obviously don't have "life circumstances" that stand in the way of your career and educational advancement.

    I'd rather nursing be seen (by ignorant, privileged people) as a "lesser field" than have nurses (OVERWHELMINGLY women) denied advancement and further education because they cannot afford it.

    wow did your nursing school teachers just love you or what?

    ...I wonder what you're comparing it to as a lesser field to what a physician? as in someone who spends a whole lot more time, money, and sacrifice to obtain to get paid 7$/pt?


    you are a nurse don't go beyond your scope of practice because it doesn't look good for anyone.

    How did you like UMASS Boston? I completed 2 courses there as electives and enjoyed it. I took the Psychosocial Mental Health across the lifespan course and another nursing course. Did you like your experience?

    To Justin? I liked UMASS; however just before I left they started increase fees and tuition and we started with web proctor for test, not allowing you to use my books during test; however I was able to pass FNP without problem...only one person that I'm aware of in my class didn't pass, which was related to the other stressors I think.
