Welp. There will be a new President soon...He has promised to "repeal and replace" Obamacare.

The real question is (as someone who will be out of school and in practice soon) what will happen with our profession? I know with Obamacare, folks were saying NPs will be in high demand. Don't get me wrong, I know NPs will still be in demand, but what do you think it will look like?

IMO mid-levels have been in existence long before president-elect DJT came into the picture. We as NPs were needed back then and we are still needed now and in the future. The shortage of physicians didn't happen overnight and it's not going to be solved overnight either. What is important is that as community, NPs have to fine tune and promote our professional role in the healthcare industry.

These are my concerns:

1) Can he federally legislate supervision for all NPs by physicians regardless of how long NP had been practicing?

2) Can he change Medicare/Medicaid rules to exclude NPs from reimbursement unless care is provided "under the supervision" of MDs?

Basically, my questions is: can he turn NPs into PAs on the federal level?

I am proud to support President Elect Trump, my Republican party, and I have never been so excited about politics.

For those worried about the direction of healthcare, keep working. Do well, work hard, and you'll make money. We're losing money as a result of Obamacare. For my family of three, I pay $16,000/year in health insurance. I can afford it, but it's ABSURD. It's hard to gauge what a President can do with his first term, but I am definitely excited to find out.

Obama never did anything positive, productive, and lasting. We now have a business leader who will take office, and I hope this leader will run this country as a business without worrying about individual feelings and entitlements. An array of men have Trump's ear, and these are knowledgeable men with Conservative world views which is just what we need after eight years of socialism.

I no longer have a concern with global warming. I feel like it's happening, but there are far more pressing issues to concern ourselves with, and sans the transgender sharing regular bathroom thing, which I also believe is ridiculous, I support the Trump-Pence platform wholeheartedly despite knowing more nurses are liberals.

Then why did you cry? I think that all of the handwringing (and rioting) is because folks don't understand what powers a POTUS has and does not have. He can cause inconveniences and annoyances, but even those are reversible (thank God). We have state constitutions and a US constitution and exist in a republic.

Anxiety is far more appropriate in light of some local elections I've seen.

I try to remain neutral and have voted both ways in the past since both parties have their downfalls but what psych guy said is truth. Most liberals I have recently talked to are emotionful bags of "da feelz " who would rather elect somebody who glorifies their minority interests and says everything is ok and tries to make you feel good about yourself while handing out food stamps to people too lazy to work. Worse off they fail to focus on any issues related to the economy or of any global importance.

Most people do not care what your sexual orientation or ethnicity is, but when you start pumping out false propaganda on how you are mistreated by the greater society and then Go riot in the streets about it..... yes, it makes us like you less and makes you look like an infidel.

Put your feels aside and focus on what matters, drop your weak sauce emotions. Toughen up and better the human race or go to some other country.

Thanks
