    I did know you were a nurse but I didn’t know that you were pursuing your doctorate in nursing Practice, how amazing! I actually used to work at a trade association for Occupational Therapists and we would collaborate with the Nurses’ association a lot so I learned a lot about various degree requirements for the field. How awesome!

    Okay I’ve never heard of a DNP before but I absolutely love that it is practice-based!!! my husband and i were just talking about how not enough programs operate that way. i’m so glad to hear this exists!! I never considered going into nursing personally but i love to hear that it is something you are so passionate about!

    i completely agree with regarding administration being more business minded instead of patient focused! I thought i wanted to become an administrator at one point but once i began to get my feet wet in leadership roles, I quickly extinguished that thought!!!

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while now, but somehow was so oblivious because I missed that you were in nursing. I really enjoyed reading about what your end goal is with this major change and the difference between a DNP and a PhD. I never knew! Also, those scrubs are cute! I wish brands like this had existed when I was in my scrub-wearing days so many years ago!
