  1. NP learning OMM?
    Actually, CPT and CMS/Medicare do not currently limit the use of the OMT CPT codes to DO's only- any billing provider (MD, DO, PA, NP) can use it if within the scope of their practice. Except DC's,...

  2. WI school nurses to distribute anti-aborition group's pamphlets to students?

  3. WI school nurses to distribute anti-aborition group's pamphlets to students?

  8. CRNA making better pay than Primary Care Physicians..
    Well to answer your question, obviously, CRNA's. Is it really your contention that primary care physicians "don't work nearly as hard" as CRNA's? Nevermind really, "hard" is a ridiculous term to use...

  9. discussion regarding education of NP (DNP) and PA compared to MD/DO
    A simple example of providing poor care to a happy patient who remains oblivious to the consequnces of that poor care: prescribing antibiotics inappropriately. A lot of patients still believe that...

  10. discussion regarding education of NP (DNP) and PA compared to MD/DO
    I'm not sure what you mean when you state that some Caribbean schools are accredited. Neither the LCME nor the AOA accredit offshore schools, and given that these are the accreditation bodies under...

  11. discussion regarding education of NP (DNP) and PA compared to MD/DO
    Osteopathic medical schools have, on average, higher tuitions than LCME schools despite being regulated by the AOA. And the AOA is certainly less anti-competitive in its accredidation policies; the...

  14. Couldn't we fix the health care system by paying doctors less?
    Your clarification makes a little more sense. But I don't think it's really a valid comparison since market forces of any kind have little to do with physician salaries outside of cosmetic and other...

  15. Couldn't we fix the health care system by paying doctors less?
    your first statement is mostly correct. the rest of it does not follow. doctors are harder to replace precisely because they go to school longer, train longer and have more medical knowlege. it takes...

    Well, call me crazy, but I don't find it "sad" that physicians are generally paid more than nurses. Actually, I find it kind of strange that you imply this shouldn't be the case... As for student...

    Sorry, but this isn't even close to true. In 2008, only 290 out of 18,036 first year medical students were non-US citizens. That's barely 1%, nowhere near 1/4 or 1/3. Where did you hear that...
