NURSE TALK - Do you envision more of a role for nurse practitioners to bridge the gap as more people need health care services?
Posted: 8/17/2010 at 3:11:13 PM

"It would be very helpful. Especially with the shortage, it seems people are waiting for a long time in the doctor's office. So having a nurse practitioner, having someone you can see right away would be advantageous." Susan Hyatt-Ortiz, RN. "I do completely, especially in rural parts of Oklahoma. I think it's more about just encouraging the nurses to go back and further their education, and giving them the funds to do that with hospitals willing to support that and be willing to hire nurse practitioners. Casey Cassidy, RN. "Yes I do. I feel like it's becoming more of a known profession. I just feel like it's becoming more of a role in patient care. With the shortage of nurses, there's also a shortage of doctors. The nurse practitioners can tie that gap in." Jessica Benda, RN. "I think definitely they do. We have a few nurse practitioners here that come to see patients before the physicians are able to come. It seems they have more time to sit and spend in getting the history and physical exam done. The physician can come and see what they have done." Laurel Schneider, RN.
