July 2, 2014 11:10 AM by Walton Reddish
In May 2012, I entered an online Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program. I had chosen to pursue the DNP because I viewed myself as a clinician and I had no interest in becoming a white coat researcher. After a great deal of investigation, I chose the Read More...
