Doctor of Nursing; a doctoral level program that leads to an entry-level nursing degree. Individuals with an academic baccalaureate degree complete three years or so of professional education leading to a Doctor of Nursing degree as the first professional degree. Students may then choose to continue their graduate education by pursuing either the degree of Doctor of Nursing Science (D.N.Sc.), a Ph.D. in nursing, or a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in nursing.

Patient discussion about Nd

Q. What is the difference between MD an ND? I saw an ad for some pain reliving therapy with the degree ND attached to the therapist name. Is it the same as MD? Is this therapist a doctor? What does it mean?

A. You can read more about it in wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_of_Naturopathic_Medicine . You should notice that in many states this degree isn’t regulated, so essentially anyone can entitle himself as ND.
