First off, I'm not a NP - I'm not even a RN yet - but I felt like this was the best place to ask my question. I just recently found out the woman who typically treats my daughter at our pediatrician's office is an NP. I've never noticed her credentials advertised on her lab coat and because she is so fantastic with my daughter, kind, and so good with quelling a worried Mother's fears (lol), I suppose I never thought to learn the nature of her licensure. So, to my question, because I'm positive that I have called this woman "doctor" innumerable times, is it offensive? Are you offended when you're called doctor?
Thanks in advance for responses!
