Is there any in universe reason that she couldn't have been training as an MD whilst still nursing ?
Err, because she was busy serving on a starship way out on the frontier at the time? I'm not sure earning an MD is something you could do as a correspondence course.
It's not like you don't have resources on a Starship. You've got a full medical staff, a modern sickbay, a computer with the knowledge of the Federation, a holodeck that can recreate any necessary training scenario including lectures from the galaxy's most renown doctors and an EMH, the earliest version of which was programmed with the knowledge of 47 individual medical officers.

Somehow, I don't think it's like becoming a doctor by mail.
Yeah, the holodeck alone should solve most of the problems. I would think the Dominion War would make training-via-holodeck a priority.

How does TET contradict the Janeway portions of G: WLB?
Janeway visited the Q Continuum in What Lay Beyond.

^Janeway also visited the Q Continuum in "Death Wish" and "The Q and the Gray" on TV. So what's the issue there?

I'm just mentioning a similarity. There must be something wrong with this forum if I just whisper something in passing and people's nitpicky tendencies rear their heads.

Re: Indistinguishable from Magic/Plagues of Night problems?

How is it nitpicking? Noddy asked how The Eternal Tide contradicted What Lay Beyond, and you answered that Janeway visited the Q Continuum in WLB. But I don't remember how that contradicts TET. I was simply asking you to clarify what that contradiction was. I'm confused and I'm seeking a fuller explanation, if you wouldn't mind, please.
