Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum. I'll try to be brief. I'm a dietitian who decided that it wasn't hands-on enough, nor did I feel satisfied with my medical knowledge, so I decided to become a nurse practitioner (still keeping current as an RD). I just finished my first semester of a BSN-MSN program. It wasn't what I expected- in fact I was pretty dissapointed overall. I realize that the undergrad vs grad programs are different. Still, my discontentment and several friends questioning why I'm not going to med school instead has made me begin to consider med school seriously for the first time. I realize that NPs and MDs/DOs have different scopes of practice and educational models, and that the decision to be one or the other is very individual. I would like to hear from anyone who is either a mid-level provider who wishes they were a physician or is a physician who wishes they would have chosen to be a mid-level provider. Mid-level providers, do you ever feel limited in your depth of medical knowledge? I want to be sure that being a mid-level provider is truly what suits me and if not then I need to work towards medical school, so I'm taking the time in-between semesters to really give it thought... Thanks!
