Hi Alyssa,

This is a great question. As discussed during our seminar there are so many obstacles being exercised between NPs and Physicians in the practice. We discussed that NPs are precepting new grad NPs into the clinical practice because medicine can be different as our approach is considered more “nursing”. I think we are in a phase where many registered nurses are seeking advance education and physicians are being apprehensive with a new modern medicine that NPs now will be playing in healthcare. Of course this is not the case everywhere because many physicians will accept this transition to alleviate longer working hours for them, inpatient or outpatient.
