    What makes me uninformed? 600/800 clinical hours is actually a fact....Its still a little blurry to me why people strive to compare NP to MD/DO when np curriculum doesnt even marginally compare to PA.

    Do you ever stop to consider that the reason why NPs receive fewer clinical hours is because they are trained for a specialty from day one? PAs are generalists, so they need all those hours for each rotation. NPs specialize and their hours are dedicated to one specialty. This is why NPs must go back to school if they want to work in another specialty and PAs do not have to go back. Why is this so hard for people to understand?
