  1. Just to add some icing, by your logic, if I dropped out of school now and went back to work as an NP, my ability to provide patient care would be better than if I decided to do family medicine. I mean dang I better just quit studying and attending cl...
  2. Stop the preceptor madness!

    Elk, i think you, jules, many others and I are on the same train. We all love NPs but the lack of regulation is killing us. The people who tout NP=MD are scary folk.... to think they can handle everything. its as if at the current state and time, NPs...
  3. Medscape career satisfaction survey

    I am not sure about you but I have a callous on my forehead trying to prove my point. NP education is too lax. Those who do not believe it are delusional and base their case of 15 year old studies. Because things never change right. Worst part is the...
  4. Never said less education is better, just that people without degrees can be ultra successful, even though most that do not have them are not. You are correct in saying that you can learn everything you need for primary care via an NP education at it...
  5. Solid anatomy class, physiology class, basic cell bio/genetics, pathology class, then system based review. physical exam class and a standalone pharm class with pharm integrated into the above 1500 clinical hours 1 year fam medicine residency paid at...
  6. I spent an hour probing for these studies, they are all out dated. Which they were probably not wrong back in the day before standards dive bombed. But it takes an inherent belief that nurses are intellectually superior to physicians and that their t...
  7. Medscape career satisfaction survey

    We cant judge peoples intelligence just by their level of degree. Plenty of people do amazing without degrees and one could say us degree people required collegiate handholding to succeed. College is just learning old information, those that create n...
  8. Stop the preceptor madness!

    Med students have core rotations which are assigned to you, then we can do electives which arent that hard to find at most places. I mean once I start clinicals I doubt I could get a rotation at MGH, but probably could at most other places just by as...
  9. internet or distance education itself is fine, but many of these schools dont have proctored tests. some do via testing centers or webcam monitoring but many do not. How can you evaluate somebody if they are not tested on it? Writing papers? Not real...
  10. Real learning happens after graduation

    oh yeah i remember, i got called fora job after i graduated, actually when walking back to my car after having to sit through that stupid emotional "omg you accomplished something great, welcome to uncle sams collection club" ceremony they call grad...
  11. Stop the preceptor madness!

    lol best movie ever. I mean best prophecy ever. Back to what jules said. The only way I feel we can get anything done is expose to the public how weak np education standards are, and incit a backlash of lawyers to come in and pick apart the practices...
  12. Medscape career satisfaction survey

    No doubt, I wouldnt have gone to college at all, Woulda stayed in my parents basement and done something computer related until I could monitize it. Unfortunately I took the weak route through nursing and now med school. Neither of which are really a...
  13. Best Specialty for an RN before becoming an FNP?

    If you are dead set on being an np (i agree with jules PA would be better if you dont want to be a nurse at all) I would work in the ER, pick up a good graduate level clinical anatomy book, read up on stuff, then a graduate level physiology course, d...

    You cast Banish- it was very effective. AAC disappears into the woods A wild troll has appeared out of the woods, it appears AAC has mutated into a longer winded and slightly more understandable form Myoglobin casts ignorance, it wasnt very effective...
  15. I think jules said it in another post but yeah when im done and your rich and retired you can loan me the money to open up a practice then we can go in business together lol! We will soon start seeing a drop off in quality care provided by NPs. I me...
