Fam Pract Manag. 1999 Feb;6(2):12.

To the Editor:

All primary care physicians should be concerned about independent practice for nurses. We need to lobby for supervised practice arrangements and against prescribing privileges. If we don't, we may soon find ourselves priced out of a job.

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