So I'm applying to schools for 2016 summer / fall entry - I'm a little confused with one aspect.
Most schools that have a masters in nursing for non nurses (entry) seem to work in the way that you earn a bachelors then proceed to the masters nurse practitioner program. I'm definitely looking to go the NP route as a career (psychiatry).
Hopkins seems to have a masters in nursing program but it doesn't look like it's a NP program from what I can tell. On their site it does say you can continue your studies for an advanced degree, but do you have to reapply for the NP portion if you go that route? And do you need to work as a nurse before that application?
I'm looking at schools in the Northeast for the most part, right now I'm planning on applying to Yale, Columbia, Rochester and UPenn - hopkins is up in the air depending on how that program works.
