Thanks to everyone's suggestions, we have added the Doctoral Degrees Forum.

Here you can discuss all doctoral programs as well as your practice.

Thanks again....

Solid decision.

Hi everyone! I'm a new DNP student specializing in FNP. I just completed my first week of classes. :) are there any other DNP student out there?

Solid decision.

I wish I had one when I was on the program. Great decision.

So, is the description of the existing Post-graduate student forum, which has included discussion of issues related to doctoral degrees all this time, going to be changed to indicate that it no longer includes discussion related to doctoral degrees, and why is the Doctoral Degrees forum under "Specialties," when all the other fora related to nursing education are under "Students"? Aren't doctoral students also students?

The PostGrad forum is for MSN students that are in non-clinical Master's program.

The Doctoral Degrees forum is just that - doctoral degrees regardless of concentration ie DNP, PhD, etc.

Okay will correct myself: this forum is for those who already HAVE a doctoral degree. We would like to keep the doctoral students questions/threads/comments in the Post-Grad Student forum.

Maybe a better choice for the name would be something like "doctorally-prepared nurses." Something to indicate that the purpose is for people who already have the degrees, rather than students pursuing them.
