Fully online DNPs? Online NPs... I understand a lot can be done thru distance education these days, but that's another whopping training disparity in my book.
I can't recall coming across any online PA programs. But I also was not looking...
you still have to do (limited) clinicals that you arrange yourself at your convenience in your home town.
we had a student from one of these programs recently that we failed her last day or her last clinical. she was awful all along, but the last straw was when she couldn't recognize strep throat in a kid with a fever, ST, big nodes, white exudates, and lack of cough as the source of fever. she didn't even look at the throat, just told him it was viral. I was one of her 2 preceptors. the other( a really excellent NP with yrs as an icu nurse, etc) was the one who insisted we fail her. I agreed. she is still a floor nurse today.
