    If you are practicing autonomously, YOU are a danger to your patients. You shouldn't threaten people over a public forum, not very nice. In addition, nothing has been said about our profession that isn't the truth. You should not be practicing autonomously unless you are a physcian!
    The truth about NPs is that they can and do practice autonomously and they DON'T endanger their patients. Physicians are the ones who endanger patients by blocking their access to care from NPs. Nobody has threatened anyone. You are the one who is becoming angry and hostile because you can't win the argument. In fact, you have no argument. Who ever decided that you have to be a physician to practice autonomously. Most professions do practice autonomously within their defined scope. This is the only one I have ever heard of that has a "supervision" requirement. That kind of shows you how stupid it is as well as how it was cooked up by physicians to artificially restrict competition since they know they would lose out to it.

    Once again, not angry and hostile. Physcians are only trying to protect patients from nps who don't have the education to be safe and autonomous. Most professions that practice autonomously dont have the capability of killing someone if they make the wrong decision. Not trying to win argument, just providing my opinion on the matter. Don't get so uptight..

    Physicians are only trying to protect their gravy train at the expense of patients. They could care less about the well being of patients. Spare me the crap about life and death. Don't try to tell me that everything encountered in healthcare is a matter of life and death. Pimples and head colds don't typically kill people, do they? Give me a break. You really do have trouble doing your job, don't you?

    Nope. No problems doing my job at all. Been doing for about 14yrs now. I have a problem with people thinking they know as much as physicians and then lauding that on their patients. That is exactly how patients die.

    Why don't you explain that process to us all in detail?

    Last few posts have been inflammatory, back and forth, and not TOS.

    If you cannot debate professionally and keep the personalization out of it, then don't post at all.

    Future posts that are like the last few will be deleted w/o notice and points assigned.

    Fair warning.........

    Unfortunately, it's not up to me to prove anything. The hallmark of statistics and experimental design is that it's up to the person making the claim (here, it's you) to provide evidence supporting their claim. So far, there's not a single study that does this.
    Are you joking? Show us the citation for where you came up with this garbage on the "hallmark of statistics and experimental design".

    Many posts deleted.

    Since everyone cannot debate civilly and remain professional, this thread is closed.

    I'm greatly disappointed in many of you..........
