Even though i work as a doctor, i am not. But my pateints still call me Dr. Shay. So my personal motivation for obtaining a doctorate's degree is to truly be Dr. Shay. In our field of nursing we are able to think like and act like doctors. We are higjly educated and we are actually doing doctors a service by taking some of the work load off of them. in this duscussion, i want to express how NPs are very caring ans attentive to their patients and with having a DNP provides us with the respect we feserve to be called Dr.
