I am asking this as a patient, not as a professional-
When you are a patient, and you are speking to a doctor, you call them Dr So and so, and when you are a patient and seeing a nurse, you call them Nurse So and so, this is an acknowledgement of their education and liscensing.
So what do you call a Nurse Practitioner??
I know that calling them "Doctor" the way i know many patients do is not right because they are a nurse by training and proud of it, but is calling them nurse also innapropriate because they have added credentials and serve a different role than many nurses?
"Nurse Practitioner Miller" just sounds so bulky. What do nurse practitioners WANT to be called and what have you been called. What is proffessionally appropriate?
