If I misread this and you weren't trying to be over the top condescending in your response to me, then I apologize. If that was your intent, I'm not really sure why you felt it necessary to come at me.
By the time I get to the starting point of my ACNP certificate program, I will have nearly 22 years as a medic in a high volume system, 16 as an active EMS instructor, 3 years as a critical care medic, and will have wrapped up my FNP program and all the didactic and clinical education that goes along with that. As I said, when I evaluate my own background, if it turns out that the certificate program I enter has gaps, I believe I'll manage to get through them.
Alas, this thread has devolved into a "nursing experience is required" debate. To the OP, I'm sorry for initiating this derailment, not my intention..
