one of the most significant issues is the lack of knowledge about the nurse practitioner scope ofpractice, resulting in restricting the scope of practice. We need to continue to advocate for nursepractitioners, by writing to our legislators about our role, and provide data showing how nursepractitioners can help our community to improve health, and decrease costs.The article stated that some physicians and the American Medical Association believethat nurse practitioner are incapable of providing quality care, and safe care at the same level asphysicians. In my opinion, it does not make any sense since nurse practitioner nurses providebetter care than a lot of physicians out there, for example, nurse practitioners assess, manage, andevaluate patients at the most independent level. Nurse practitioners spend a lot of time with thepatients, which allow them to provide more detailed instruction on how to address health issues.
