  1. If you can get a doctorate (DMSc) in the same amount of time as a master's (MHA), I'd probably go for the doctorate. I am currently a student in RMUoHP's DMSc Healthcare Leadership & Administration Track, as well as an MHA student at CSU global.

  8. I hear great things about carolinas healthcare hospitalist residency!
  9. DNPs calling themselves doctor in a clinical setting needa be slapped.
  10. Agreed. It’s like when NPs sell the fact that they are the more “hollistic” providers. Neither is true but is a make believe selling point.
