NPs are here to stay

Fam Pract Manag. 1999 Feb;6(2):12.

To the Editor:

Nurse practitioners are here to stay, and we family physicians need to do the honorable thing by helping them in every way possible.

Family physicians will do better by realizing there is enough business for all of us to make a comfortable living and still give our patients plenty of choices. Patients will do fine deciding for themselves what type of provider they want to see.

Editor's note: This letter is a response to “Nurse Practitioners: Growing Competition for Family Physicians?” in our October 1998 issue.
