  6. MSN direct entry/CNL/NP questions
    Yes I am really happy with my decision to do the ABSN. I'm almost done! I haven't gotten the impression that a generalist master's gives you an advantage. I'll be entering the work field sooner than...

  12. Duke ABSN Fall 2014 Hopefuls

  21. Does going to a "top-rated" nursing school really make a difference?
