  1. Should the title "CRNA" be rebranded?

    Simply because MD's (all of them) go to medical school and CRNA's go to nursing school, not just for their undergrad, but the CRNA graduate education is done in a nursing college. The title anesthesiologist is the name given to a medical doctor just...
  2. DNP Fluff

    The entire point of a DNP is to translate the research, not actually do the research. Some DNP's do, in fact, lead research projects, but the degree was meant to have a deeper understanding of research so the correct evidence can be used in the corre...
  3. DNP Fluff

    I am not a huge fan of theory, but Nightingale was really a rock star. Just wasn't her theories, she was a master statistician and mathematician and she worked her tail off at Crimea. Some of the other ones are not worth their weight in water.
  4. Bedside nurses have gone through quite a bit of training in many places as preceptors. My job before this one was creating preceptor workshops and nurse residency courses and I trained nurses all over the country. It was fantastic. There will be a NP...
  5. NP schools are a lot more than you are giving them credit for. There are variances in school quality, but your sweeping statements are factless. I have seen a lot more physicians in favor of NP's than the opposite and if NP's were killing people at a...
  6. Because my work and research in conflict management tells me otherwise. Are there people that do both? Sure. However, many people who do not like to speak up at work do so on these threads. If students get together and really start to demand a "bette...
  7. I was just having a discussion today about the NP curriculum. This thread had me interested in asking. The NP's that I work and teach with said they would favor another pharm, but more of a pharm class that had to do specifically with interactions wi...
  8. I don't want to speak for FNP, but from my point of view, I will talk about my experience in both academia and in practice. There are a number of people on Allnurses in general who use their own lived experience and use that to make broad general sta...
  9. DNP Fluff

    There are nursing programs that learn right along physicians as well, but neither is the same. CIM Good Doctors and Nurses - Johns Hopkins Center for Innovative Medicine Again, you are giving a lot of opinions, and I don't know if you are a med stud...
  10. DNP Fluff

    I totally agree with you there. Nobody, Imho, should be allowed into an NP without experience, but PA's graduate without experience too. Be careful what you wish for. We can change internally, the AMA is not all it is cracked up to be either. My hu...
  11. I WOULD NOT recommend Brookdale

    Get over myself? I have a responsibility to make sure my students don't kill anyone. You are missing the point. It is not about credit, it is about understanding simple algebra which I am sure you learned even if it was 20 years ago. It is not my re...
  12. I WOULD NOT recommend Brookdale

    I require my students to do this "without credit" and without a calculator. If they cannot do simple algebra, then they should not be in the nursing program. I have 2 children in college, I hope for their sake they are not emailing their professors t...
  13. DNP Fluff

    If that is your main source of research, then that is a significant problem. And this thread is about DNP's, all of which have extensive education in research. Unlike a PhD they do not carry out a dissertation, but they take many of the same classes ...
  14. Do you have a preceptor program for NPs? I know they are starting a couple in community and rural areas.
  15. Who says nurses can't be scholars?

    Again, biochem and physiology is given in undergrad but has no bearing on scholarly work. You have made it sound on more than one thread that you have quite the disdain for nursing education, but since you are not a nurse, I am not sure where you are...
