  • Are NPs & PAs Facing Burnout?

    I have been hearing the ''B'' word in relation to advanced practice more frequently lately and it's beginning to worry me. Not because burnout is new, it isn't, we have been talking about burnout for years, but usually in the context of how we can fill the void of physicians deciding to leave practice.
