Did they earn it?
Iwas dismayed learning about this “doctor of nursing” title. It’s OK to have wishful thinking, but to act on it is borderline insanity at best and deceitful intent at its worst.
If one likes to be a doctor, it’s as simple as going to medical school and gaining the knowledge. Only when you earn your knowledge is it worth having as a title in front of your name. Why this back-door approach? It clearly shows how insecure and insufficient nursing professionals must be feeling at this time.
Nursing is a highly dignified profession. We sincerely hope common sense prevails. Dr. Haravu Lokesh Palm Harbor, Fla.
