Are direct entry NP programs bad for the nursing profession?

How long should you be an RN before becoming an NP? And what about the second-degree direct entry programs?

I share my thoughts on the minimum experience needed to become an NP.

I admit up front I’m an old-skool nurse, so I believe experience trumps everything. Care to weigh in on this topic?

What about NP programs that have pass/fail instead of graded exams?

What if you didn’t get a percentage grade on an exam while in school? Just pass or fail. Is this a good thing?
