Are there any stigmas attached to these individuals, be it good or bad? Do you personally see any advantages or disadvantages to going this route? Thank you
Do you have any insight or experience on applicants or current/past med students who have taken the RN, BSN --> MD route?
I have had the opportunity to work with second career professionals who transitioned from nursing to medicine. There were no stigmas attached to these individuals. I see advantages from transitioning from one health professions career to another because that individual brings experience and perspectives that are valuable in their new professional role. I am not aware of any disadvantages.
