But why are DNPs such wannabe doctors? Calling yourselves doctors to a patient when clearly you're not a medical doctor... And also claiming to be almost as good when people even on SDN (actual medical students) have said NPs/DNPs make "wtf mistakes" that can lead to problems... Though by being in primary care, almost everything you deal with has nothing to do with life/death situation so you're safe from all that.
Anyways, why be wannabes?
Regarding your information being from med students on SDN, I have seen MSIIIs and some IVs (from top med schools) say the stupidest or "wtf" interjections during clinical in front of attendings at report or during PBL. Anecdotes are always funny because everyone has them.
I have never seen a mid level claim to be as a "good" as a physician. You pre-med wannabes (Ya that's you) take a few statements from a couple NPs in the limelight and project them onto the entire DNP population.
Please enlighten me with your healthcare experience or go troll harder somewhere else.
BTW I talked to a few attendings at the hospital today about the NP hate on SDN and they just laughed at the idiocy of it all.
