    Are you ACTUALLY supervised???

    Thank you for the thorough response! I’m starting to think that collaboration is something we can do without being forced to supervision and collaboration. Physicians very often collaborate with each other. Being independent doesn’t mean that we’ll never mean help, it means that we can freely treat patients within our scope of practice and full extent of our education and training. I can see how such complicated patients may benefit from such collaboration. Thank you for all you do!

    I appreciate your input. And totally agree with you. NPs have a more holistic approach to patient care (from what I am starting to see). It doesn’t have to be a competition. Sadly, AMA makes it seem that way. It’s about patient safety and access to equal care. There has been some MD associations that support NP independence because they see the work and quality care they can give.

    Thanks for the response. NP certification toward independent practice definitely needs a lot of work. But we’re headed that way whether AMA likes it or not. 😃 I would never ask anyone to write my paper neither will I be using any of your ideas since they are not congruent with my topic question.

    Please elaborate on your response, how does this applies to ALL nurse practitioners and not to any MDs as your post suggests. Also, is the response meant to be constructive and a response to the original question or something totally off topic. Thank you.

    Thank you for the response. Do you feel safer with a physician overlooking your work? Do you feel it is necessary?

    Are you ACTUALLY supervised???

    Hello! I am currently studying to become a nurse practitioner and I am writing a paper about the lack of independence NPs face in California. I would like to know what it's like to work with a physician in the sense of supervision. My idea is that they don't actually read all your care plans and micromanage but I really have no idea. I know the medical association strongly opposes NPs becoming independent because of a safety issue but is it really that or that they don't want us to take over the field? Has there been a time when a physician corrects your care plan? or disagrees with your treatment? Do you think we should be supervised or not? Does your state allow independent practice? I'm just trying to get some real answers from NPs in the field. Thanks!

    I’ve asked a variety of ppl. Seems like everyone says to buy the Q Bank from APEA website.

    Anyone can say what the APEA exam is like? I’m kinda worried because I have only read what I need to to complete the assignments. Pathophysiology appears to have no tests. How did you pass the APEA? Did you actually read all the chapters? Any tips for the APEA exam? Thanks in advance.

    I don’t know about you guys but this covid wave hit hard and I’m not as motivated to start school. Work has been exhausting. I work in the ICU and we’ve been out of ratio, lack of resources, extremely sick ppl and the list goes on....

    I’m sure 10 years from now we’re going to be independent practitioners, not needing and MD to practice so I think either way will be fine
  14. How can I have more of your attitude haha. What kind of nursing do you do. I admire your response.

    I feel so discouraged!

    Amen! And I've seen it all the way from nursing school through my career and now through my higher education. Blessings!
