I know that this is a hot topic and required another thread. So here it is. For the practicing NP's/DNP's - do you really feel that your training has prepared you be an (almost) independent practitioner? Are some posters right that NP's can never replace primary care (or work alongside acute care) practitioners? Or, do you feel that you can compete with (and occasionally collaborate with) your MD/DO peers? Are you making what you are worth? Who is better at offering high quality,cost effective primary care?
What's the general consensus?
