Docs should wel­come NPs, PAs into their prac­tices

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

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.
