Have you checked the web site Medical Education - Graduate Degrees - Western University of Health Sciences
This is in Pomona,CA offering a computer-based MSN program / FNP certificate for 2 years. You have to have a BSN to get in this program. The program allows you to do your clinicals in your area as long as this area is an underserved community.
I have been a family nurse practitioner for 7 years and still enjoying it. As an RN, I used to work in ER, ICU and nephrology. These nursing areas gave me adequate knowledge to be the foundation of my practice. I have worked in hospital-based clinics as well as free-standing ones like urgent care clinics. I have no problems with the MDs, I worked with. In fact most MDs specially in California and Arizona (where I worked ) prefer to work with nps. These MDs are quite respectful and have agreed with my decisions and even gave me referrals. They hadn't insulted me ... nps and pas are even members of the hospital medical committee (in CA).
I think if you are competent in your job, you'll gain the respect of your colleagues even if they are MDs. This, of course, is not an easy matter for your skills will always be tested with every patient you see.
Therefore, while in school, study hard and learn as much as you can to be proficient in your clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat a patient. Don't forget professionalism in action and behavior too, to be a competent practitioner.
I hope you'll pursue being an np. Good luck!
