Allowing Nurse Practitioners to Practice Independently Can Make Health Care More Affordable

…let nurse practitioners practice medicine independently, rather than under the thumb of a supervising physician, after a probationary period of supervision.

…rules limiting nurse practitioners “are related not to their ability, education or training, or safety concerns, but to the political decisions of the state in which they work,” and because “most studies showed that NP-provided care is comparable to physician-provided care on several process and outcome measures. Moreover, the studies suggest that NPs may provide improved access to care.”

…giving nurses a greater scope of practice helps bring costs down by as much as 35 percent, with higher levels of patient satisfaction.
