A new report from a World Health Organization team indicates that non-physicians, such as PAs and NPs, provide comparable care to that of physicians.
As the primary care physician shortage looms, and PAs and NPs are constantly called “the answer,” it seems patients are unaware of what they can even do.
A new romance drama series with a nurse practitioner at its heart is headed to the small screen, bringing exposure to the NP profession through entertainment.
A new survey by the AANP has found that the total mean income for NPs was more than $112k in 2017.
There is a forward push for the DNP to be the required degree in order to practice as an NP, but what is the point of the DNP?
There is a growing cadre of nurse practitioners who tack on up to a year of clinical and other training, often in primary care.
While the exact daily responsibilities vary according to the type of clinic or office where an NP works, most rural NPs enjoy a great deal of autonomy while performing a wide range of tasks.
There’s arguably no better time for NP’s to call their own shots, and no better time for healthcare administrators to apply this talent solution to meet their community’s need for care.
One NP addresses physicians who say there is no substitute for the advanced education and training doctors receive.
““Apples and oranges” does not even come close to comparing the levels of knowledge and training between nurse practitioners and physicians,” says Dr. Sudhakar Madakasira.
