We serve and fight for this country and I'm a purple heart Veteran and all I see are nurse practioner that are wanna be doctors and cant give you meds you need because they are not a doctor so stop putting me in with them and find me a doctor. I pay for all outsourcing because the care I get at the VA is crap.
Whoa there. Nurse practitioners are able to handle almost anything for one thing. They can prescribe meds just like a dr. They don't wanna be drs. Haven't you watched the news lately. The new va director is raising the salary for drs so they can hire more. He's doing a lot for the conditions that have existed in the va for quite some time. I'm a Vietnam era vet so I've been watching what is going on. So you can cool down and stop the attitude about nurses. Where would you guys be without us nurses?
You probably get better care and time from the nurse practitioners than you would from a doctor! Nurse practitioners are not just regularly trained nurses "pretending" to be doctors. They have extra training and schooling to do what they do. They cant just pull any nurse out of the hospital and allow her to "pretend" to be a doctor.. Nurse practitioners and Physicians Assistants are highly trained and specialized to do what they do. I prefer to see a nurse practitioner! They take more time to listen and do more than most Drs I've seen! You'll get more time and attention from an NP than a MD any day!
