You joined CF today and decided to dig up a 5 year old thread? To bash on PAs?

How cute.

We're slipping. Nobody's told him to STFU and GTFO.

PA's require a Masters Degree.....does a nurse? Sounds like Clare is a butt hurt *** wiper that is jealous of the young PA's doing the good work while she cleans up bodily fluids.

Ah... Now I see why you don't want to say anything.

Nurse practioners currently require a Master's degree but they will soon require a Doctorate degree. In many states, nurse practitioners can practice autonomously, while Physician Assistants cannot, in any state.

If you say "I have the sniffles" they're going to give you a low date priority 10 minute slot.

If you tell them you're crapping black, sticky stool you're going to be in no later than the next day for a 30 minute slot....or more likely in the same day or sent to the ER depending on the time of day that you call.
Triage?

I'll put my wife's 35 years of nursing and her Masters degree in nursing and 15 years as a Nurse Practitioner up against any recently graduated and degreed MD.

I always see the nurse first who checks vitals, goes over any Meds, and then just asks in general what I'm there for today. Nothing detailed and it's no big deal for me to say one sentence about the reason for the visit.

I have had excellent dealings with PAs in the past. They have been very knowledgeable and provided the medical care I needed.

In fact one sent me to a specialist that ultimately lead to sinus surgery. Luckily, the doctor that I normally saw was out that day. Had he been the one I saw I probably would have once again been prescribed antibiotics for a sinus infection.

Many of the doctors at the hospital where my wife worked called her "Doctor Nancy" when there were no patients around.

Do you know what they teach a nurse on the first day of nursing school? You're #1 job as a nurse is to keep doctors from killing people.
