RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I just want to clarify as a nurse practitioner that the Oregon requirement for Continuing Education is 100 hours every 2 years with what I believe is 30 hours in pharmacology.
My NP program required a total of 10 semester units in basic and advanced pharmacology and the total time for me to obtain my MSN and Nurse Practitioner was 36 months as opposed to the 24 months one person stated earlier. The up and coming DNP will take 3-4 years plus a 1-year residency.
Because of the shortage in primary care providers, I welcome the different disciplines represented in primary care. It gives people options for their care and as a person trained in nursing, I am happy to have the freedom to be able to integrate all modalities. There is a place for all of us.
