To the Editors:

I totally agree with your editorial. We have confused the public, healthcare, and above all nurses ourselves with the many entry levels into nursing. Let’s not continue to do so. Just because a group of advanced practice nurses thinks this is the way to go, doesn’t mean the rest of us agree. Our voices should be heard also. Advanced practice nursing should not forget what is truly “nursing.” Some think that advancing the practice of nursing means crossing over to the practice of medicine. If you want a doctorate, get a PhD.
