  • @DrSandmann: Nurse … @DrSandmann: Nurse Practitioners are not and have never claimed to be physicians. This video is simply stating that Nurse Practitioners are an educated and qualified resource for those who need primary care. Less and less medical students are chosing primary care as their specialty. If you are a physician as your login would imply, you should know that.

  • There is absolutely … There is absolutely no disputing the fact that nurse-practitioners do not have the same level of training that primary care physicians do. They attend nursing school, whereas a physician attends medical school (which is far more rigorous). And they spend 2 to 2.5 years in a nurse-practitioner program, whereas a physician spends 3 years or more in a residency, where they work nearly 80 hours a week. I’ll trust my health to a physician, not a nurse.
