While the current number of physicians is not adequate to meet America’s need for primary care (and the future looks even bleaker), there is a way to expand the capacity of the nation’s primary care workforce by using nurse practitioners (NPs). These registered nurses have advanced clinical knowledge and training, and are able to help patients in major primary care specialties: family health, adult and geriatric care, pediatrics, and women’s health. Graduate level courses and clinical practice equip NPs with specialized knowledge and clinical competency to practice in primary care settings where they assess patients, order and interpret diagnostic tests, and initiate and manage treatment plans. In other words, they can do most of what primary-care physicians do.
