What is a Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant?Sometimes patients are provided with analternative form of Primary and Specialty Careand are able to schedule an appointment with aNurse Practitioner (NP) or Physician Assistant(PA). This article will provide you with a briefdescription of each and outline some of thebenefits of receiving your primary care servicesfrom an NP or PA.Both NPs and PAs are non-physicianpractitioners (NPPs) - also called mid-levelpractitioners, and they can be a great alternativeto a Primary Care physician or in some cases aSpecialist physician.The American Association of Medical Colleges(AAMC) estimates that the U.S. will face aphysician shortage of over 90,000 physicians by2020; a figure that’s expected to reach over130,000 by 2025. This shortage is propellingNPs and PAs into an increasingly important rolein primary care as more healthcare providersemploy them to fill the gap. In 2012, 10 percentof all staffing requests from hospitals and clinicswere for mid-level practitioners, compared tojust two percent in 2010.Nurse Practitioner - (1) A registered nursewith a graduate degree in nursing prepared foradvanced practice involving independent andinterdependent decision making and directaccountability for clinical judgment across thehealth care continuum or in a certified specialty.(2) A registered nurse who has completedadditional training beyond basic nursingeducation and who provides primary health careservices in accordance with state nurse practicelaws or statutes. Tasks performed by nursepractitioners vary with practice requirementsmandated by geographic, political, economic,and social factors. Nurse practitioner specialistsinclude, but are not limited to, family nursepractitioners, gerontological nurse cgynecologic nurse practitioners, and schoolnurse practitioners.Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistantshave a similar skill set to that of physicians. NPscan perform approximately 85 percent of thetasks that Primary Care Physicians do, while it’sestimated that PAs can perform around 80percent of tasks. These may include performingphysical exams, writing prescriptions andordering diagnostic tests, diagnosing andtreating conditions such as diabetes or highblood pressure, and educating patients onhealth and lifestyle choices.Physician Assistant - A physician assistantis a person who has successfully completed anaccredited education program for physicianassistants, is licensed by the state and ispracticing within the scope of that license.Physician assistants are formally trained toperform many of the tasks a physician can. Insome states, they may prescribe medications.They take medical histories, perform physicalexams, order lab tests and x-rays, and giveinoculations. Most states require that they workunder the supervision of a physician.Reference: Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants:Why You Should Hire One (or the Other)May 31, 2013 by Victoria GarmentThe Profitable Practice

You know,you take the average cost of the pack of cigarettes, and multiply it by how many yousmoke in a week, then multiply that by a year and say, “wow, look how much money I couldsave if I quit smoking!” Unfortunately, this financial savings is usually not a good enoughincentive for people to quit smoking. So let’s look at other ways smoking costs you, notjust financially but in terms of your health: Premature aging/wrinkles Yellow teeth, gum disease Smaller, less effective lungs Early heart disease DNA damage that can lead to cancerRemember, as soon as you stop smoking, your body begins to heal.
