  • Empowering NPs & PAs

    This is really hard for me to say but here it goes: we should thank the ladies of ''The View.'' In an ironic twist of fate that snarky remark insulting the Miss America with her ''doctor's stethoscope'' has unintentionally done more to advance the image of nursing profession than the pageant contestant they were mocking. Not only did the entire ...

  • NPs as PCPs

    Since the Affordable Care Act (ACA) first made headlines, a frequent topic in the media has been the shortage of primary care providers (PCPs) to accommodate the influx of newly insured patients. At the time of its implementation, it was estimated that there would be a shortfall of 45,000 to 60,000 PCPs to provide care for the millions of newly ...

  • Health Policy or Politics?

    The most recent 2014 legislative session was one of excitement and of woes. We saw states like Connecticut, New York and Minnesota get full practice authority legislation signed into law.

  • The Providers of ‘No'

    Ready for my rant? Over the past year or two, I've noticed an increase in physician groups engaging in negative campaigning directed toward NPs. Could it have always been present but I just hadn't noticed? Or is the negativity a reaction to the numerous bills that have been introduced in several states to remove barriers and allow fully ...

  • Healthcare Jobs: Nursing and Healthcare IT on the Rise

    As healthcare providers grapple with the historic June 28 Supreme Court Decision upholding the Affordable Care Act, one thing seems to be clear: it is going to create more jobs. With an estimated 30 million people gaining healthcare insurance coverage as a result of the new law, the healthcare system is already gearing up to accommodate the huge ...
