Docs should welcome NPs, PAs into their practices
Regarding the article “Physician assistant, nurse practitioner workloads expected to increase” ( ModernHealthcare.com, Feb. 18), smart doctors will have several NPs on staff. They help grow their practices. NPs’ skills can add to the clinic’s revenue, so it can be a win-win for the clinic. NPs and physician assistants also help the clinic provide professional care to many more patients. Wake up, doctors, and look at the reality of the gift you are being handed.
