    Yeah but I asked to see a real doctor when I made my appointment, not a nurse "Dr"

    I've tried explaining that to him and others that see this but they apparently just don't understand and want to degrade nurses/ignore the facts.

    I come to the misc to get away from that crap and now some guy posted a youtube video that I assume will try and explain my job to me, like pretty much every patient I deal with.

If you do a little research you’ll find that many studies have been done and have concluded that medical outcomes are virtually identical between patients treated by NPs as compared to physicians (or, as you uneducated folk call them, real doctors). This is also true in intensive care units that are staffed exclusively by acute care nurse practitioners.
    Ok, "Dr"

    LOL I noticed that too

    Why do they list every degree/online certificate they've gotten since high school but a real doctor just lists M.D.?

    Everyone understands what you're saying, but you're so caught up in defending your training that you can't see how it can be misleading to refer to yourself as a doctor when dealing with patients in a hospital setting. It doesn't make a difference if they have a doctorate because you know damn well what the general population associates with that title in a clinical setting, so it's delusional and annoying.

    If you, a DNP, introduce yourself as doctor to patients while knowing full well how they've just interpreted your title then you're a fraud.
    You have been touched.

    Do you refer to yourself as "Master Nurse" with that impressive degree?

    Could also be that M.D differs in other parts of the world from the US in the levels of education they have to go through.

    "Doctor of Medicine (abbreviated M.D., from the Latin Medicinae Doctor) is a medical degree, the meaning of which varies between different jurisdictions. In the United States, Canada and some other countries, the M.D. denotes a professional graduate degree awarded upon graduation from medical school. In the United States, this generally arose because many in 18th century medical professions trained in Scotland, which used the M.D. degree nomenclature. In England, however, Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery was used and eventually in the 19th century became the standard in Scotland too. Thus, in the United Kingdom, Ireland and other countries, the M.D. is a research doctorate, higher doctorate, honorary doctorate or applied clinical degree restricted to those who already hold a professional degree in medicine; in those countries, the equivalent professional to the North American and some others use of M.D. is still typically titled Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (M.B.B.S.)."

    The countries I have relatives working as doctors have an education and knowledge that far exceeds that of a regular RN.
    Saying that, a good nurse is like Robin to Batman, my nurse helps me out and takes a bulk of my workload off so I compensate her well.

    Also your basic argument is flawed because it presupposes a family doctor is inherently smarter than a NP, and that nurses are dumb for that matter. tThe few girls I know going for their NP I went to uni with were basically memorizing surgical textbooks, high IQ good memory. Very bright and driven, they would have probably been successful had they attended med school. An ex of mine got accepted to med school from being a rn (she wants that med bank), shes bright as ****. I would be surprised if they werent on the same level of learnability as most med students.

    So that being said, why cant a bright individual (idiots arent going to np school if were going by grades) take their 4 year rn degree, do a masters and learn the **** they need to learn on their own... Most students learn 90% of what they know out of class anways

    My primary care physician is a NP's, lol. He is very knowledgeable though and he is doing a great job taking care of me.

    If you, a DNP, introduce yourself as doctor to patients while knowing full well how they've just interpreted your title then you're a fraud.

    Also your basic argument is flawed because it presupposes a family doctor is inherently smarter than a NP, and that nurses are dumb for that matter. tThe few girls I know going for their NP I went to uni with were basically memorizing surgical textbooks, high IQ good memory. Very bright and driven, they would have probably been successful had they attended med school. An ex of mine got accepted to med school from being a rn (she wants that med bank), shes bright as ****. I would be surprised if they werent on the same level of learnability as most med students.

    So that being said, why cant a bright individual (idiots arent going to np school if were going by grades) take their 4 year rn degree, do a masters and learn the **** they need to learn on their own... Most students learn 90% of what they know out of class anyways
    Correct. Except we've had 6-8 years of studies and training, 4 is very recent for an equivalent degree.

    OP's post and others are created to shun anything under the title of MD, painfully ironic for a forum of no-job basement dwellers/lyft drivers to make fun of guys like me making well over six figures by treating sick people.

    You keep ignoring that Ph.D.'s don't claim to be medical doctors but N.P.'s do try to pass themselves off as real doctors (M.D.) if the patient doesn't know any better

    Do you introduce yourself as a nurse practitioner when you first see a patient or do you introduced yourself as a Dr and leave out the NP part, because I guarantee if you introduce yourself as Dr it's because you want patients to think you're a real doctor instead of a nurse playing doctor

    And LOL at yebat deleting all his posts in this thread after getting shown up for not being a real doctor like he pretended to be

    O
    a nurse np has 6 years of health care knowledge and training, thousands of hours of clinical experience as well ( ive never been a med student, nor have i really read their curriculum but Im guessing your statement of 6-8 years of training means that is more intense therefore more valuable? It would be my presupposition thats correct, but i just wanna make sure thats what youre implying)


    not saying that an np and an md are equivalent in terms of education in the literal sense, but I think they could easily be comparable in terms of individual skill and patient satisfaction when comparing two practitioners. hell I wouldnt be surprised that np's have higher patient satisfaction rates over physicians due to how valued altruism and bedside manner are pushed in nursing vs the common critique of the bedside manner of physicians. Im on a random tangent now though, this quarantine is going to my brain bro lmao)

    Thank goodness theres someone else who can also see op and his circle jerk crew are dumb

    edit: ahhh youre an np, i was assuming your comment on 6-8 years of training was refering to medschool and a residency/fellowship, too lazy to edit the comment

    You're clearly trolling at this point, no one is this stupid after having the answer explained multiple times. I can see why there's threads saying no one likes you.

    I doubt their "training" is equivalent to a real doctor

    Most of what nurses do is just follow orders from a real doctor, I'm not sure that counts as "training" like a real 3-4 year residency doctors do after med school

    It would be like claiming a flight attendant has "years of flying training and experience" because they were on the same airplane as pilots and now we should call them pilots too

    Funny thing though they went from being called flight attendants to now being called "cabin crew"

    It's weird how everyone is being jumbled up into a one size fits all category so you can't distinguish real credentials

    One of my last appointments I got a card saying it was with a certain "provider" LOL

    family doctors were people not good enough to be specialists

    a nurse np has 6 years of health care knowledge and training, thousands of hours of clinical experience as well ( ive never been a med student, nor have i really read their curriculum but Im guessing your statement of 6-8 years of training means that is more intense therefore more valuable?

    a nurse can have a lot of experience by observing what doctors do, but their innate cognitive abilities are why they're a nurse and not a doctor

    wrong

    the moment someone graduates medical school, they outrank you in the clinical setting.

    there are doctors for a reason, medical school and residency is hard for a reason.

    they are training and selected in a rigorous setting to high standards because when **** hits the fan the buck stops with them. not some physician extender who came off an assembly line, molded with the intention to take care of the 80% common cases you see in in a particular medical field, so that real doctors are able to dedicate their time and effort to the other 20% more intellectually and technically demanding cases
