  2. Those of you who have completed a doctorate program such as the ones offered by Nova Southeastern or ATSU... What are you doing now? Are you still practicing clinically? Have you gone into academia? Administration? Are you working for the government or an NGO? How are your new paychecks? What do you enjoy about your new career that you wouldn't have otherwise been able to achieve? Realizing that, as much as I love the OR, I won't be able to operate forever, I'm considering a couple of these programs in hopes of increasing my earnings potential and opening up a few different paths for the future. Your thoughts?
  3. Anyone have a J.D. that has went through the application process?
  4. I am currently an undergraduate in a 5 year nursing program. I was wondering what the actual difference was between a PA and DNP. I know that PA's have received more clinical training, but it seems that DNP's are in school longer and of course get to have the doctor in front of their name. I chose to be a nursing major so that I would be able to have a job right out of school and so i would be able to work (save money and pay for my own grad school) while getting the experience i need to either be a PA or DNP. I keep hearing different things about both professions, but it seems to me that both function at the basic same level of competency, so what is one doing having a doctrate while the other is only at the masters level and why is the master's level being paid more? I have also heard that hospitals prefer to hire DNP's because htey have more experience in actual patient care... I am just extremely conflicted in between the two professions. I did not want to be a doctor because I don't want to be the one that everybody looks at waiting for instructions on how to proceed to save a person's life. I want to aide the doctor, but mainly i want to be a support for the patient through their illness. Especially because of the new healthcare plan that has recently come into effect, i know that the PA and DNP professions are on the rise since they offer cheaper services. What should I do?!?!?
