The Future is Now for Nurse Practitioners

Laura Raines of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has a new piece detailing the expanding role of nurse practitioners.  As she writes, "born out of the physician shortage of the 1960s, the nurse practitioner role seems to have come full circle with the recommendations of the Institute of Medicine and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s 2010 report on the future of nursing... By continuously expanding their roles, proving their competency and pushing the barriers of acceptance and authority for more than 45 years, nurse practitioners have not only earned a place at the leadership table, they have found more ways to practice."
