Opinion: Nurse Practitioners Could Alleviate Primary Care Shortage in Maine

Check out last week's opinion piece in the Portland Press Herald, "Rx for Maine's primary-care shortage is nurse practitioners."  Written by Michael Hiltz, RN, BSN, a nurse practitioner student at the University of Southern Maine, the piece suggests that "a divide should not be widened or exacerbated between the nurse practitioners and physicians," explaining that expanding nurse practioners' roles could help solve Maine's shortage of primary care physicians.
