    I just want to say that I've had only good experiences so far with Delta and the recruiters I've dealt with have been consistently professional, curteous and helpful. I suspect that whoever you corresponded with is getting some "retraining." Whether or not someone thinks it's silly for an APN to demand to be addressed as doctor, the response was over the top and completely unprofessional.

    Nurses truly are our own worst enemy.

    Bet, I do the SAME job as a physician and I DO get the same pay. Imagine that.

    The rest is not even worth responding too.
    The post reeks of jealousy.

    Quote from HumptyDumpty
    WOW, I guess I am unable to comprehend what I am reading. You know what, you need to get off your high horse. Who cares that you spent an extra year doing some capstone project to get your DNP. Whoopdie doo, now you want to be called Dr. in the clinical setting?? What next, you expect to earn the same as a MD? I bet you couldn't even pass USMLE step 1. Seriously, this shouldn't be an issue.

    And your last article you posted is very biased towards the DNP. I have NEVER heard a pharmD, lawyer (JD), or even a physical therapist with a doctorate address themselves as Dr. in the clinical setting. Why should you?

    I do believe it's either you don't speak english or you find it hard to grasp. If this was the way you replied the recruiter, I do believe he responded in kind.

    this post in particular "Your post is difficult to understand. It seems you are saying "that for no reason would you call yourself a physician or Dr. without the degree". I assume you mean either MD or DO? What about podiatrists, dentists, chiropractors, optometrists and psychologists? They are an MD or DO."

    Please reread what I wrote. You are not wrong in wanting to be called a Dr., that's your degree you earned it but note that if I become a NP with masters, I cannot call myself a Dr. and a generic email sent to people I would not expect them to have titles. I have received several letters from bank that do not put Ms. or Mrs. I cant get all snooty that they left out my title.
