What about calling NPs doctor?

Is it OK for a Nurse Practitioner (NP) to introduce themselves as doctor?

The advanced nursing degree required to practice as an NP is at a minimum a Master’s of Science in Nursing (MSN), but you can also attain you Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP).

Is it ok for a DNP to introduce themselves as doctor? I mean, they have earned their doctorate degree.


Until next time…
