    Question for you all - I posted a question about a BSN to DNP program a couple days ago and am wondering if you all have your master's already or are in a BSN to DNP program. Any reason for one or the other? I know there is talk of requiring the DNP in the future, but I plan to have graduated before that is estimated to happen. I'm getting close to 50 and although I am a life long learner, not sure I want to be a life long student

    For me peronsally, I wanted to go ahead and get my "terminal" degree in nursing...personal goal. I am attending MUSC in the fall for the BSN to DNP program. We are awarded the MSN as well as DNP. I chose the family NP speciality. I know there is talk of all NP's by 2015 being required to have their DNP. Makes sense to just go ahead and get it done...but again, my personal choice. You are only 50...nowadays retiring at 56 is unheard of...you probably have another 20 years at least to work! lol Good luck with whichever route you go. nurse:

    I was doing the math a couple months ago when thinking about going back to school and realized that I do indeed have another 20 years in me I am glad to find the BSN to DPN program - will have to check into it more thoroughly.

    Is there anything practice wise that a DNP prepared FNP can do that at MSN prepared one can't (at least today?)

    I don't think there is any clinical differentiation b/w what a DNP FNP can do and the MSN FNP. I know when I applied to UAB for the MSN FNP, it was going to take 3 years...in that same amount of time, I can get my DNP FNP at MUSC.

    I noticed that Plus it seems the MSN programs are enrolling for a year or more out. I have missed MUSC's deadline and it looks like they enroll once a year. I really want to start asap, but still need to get that stats class out of the way.

    Idont think there is much differance in regards to scope of practice...yet. I also wanted to get the terminal degree.I think the DNP is going to be the new norm in a few years and I wanted to complete it before it was a requirement.

    Hi everyone! Congratulations on getting accepted... I am currently looking into the BSN-DNP program for 2012 in MUSC. I wanted to know more or less what GPA's y'all had? I know the requirement is a 3.0 on 4.0 scale but is it really competitive?

    Thanks!!
