I was wondering what is the shortest path to becoming an NP. My background is BS(clinical medicine) and MD and 5-years ophthalmologist in China. Just moved to Seattle, WA and would like to continue my career in a similar way in U.S. I don't want to take the board certification exam at this point. Instead, an NP sounds perfect to me because of their rights of prescription. I did some research and found tons of information regarding schools/programs of RN/BSN/MSN/DNP.
I was wondering if anyone knows the fastest way to become an NP. i.e BSN=>RN=>MSN or ADN=>RN=>MSN... online V.S non-online programs
Just started to get familiar with nursing programs
around Seattle and would appreciate if anyone could point to the right direction.
