No, he's standing for what he thinks is best for his patients and his profession. I'm sure I'd be the same way if some gung-ho nurses wanted to come in and do the same thing do without much extra training....

[quote]Interesting.

We are strictly forbidden to manage weight loss, chronic pain, or prescribe to relatives (wh...

[quote]And why would NP's not want to collaborate?[/quote] No one ever said we don't want to. There are no less than 5 physicians i work with that I could call and ask a question to, and they would answer without hesitation. One I consider my mentor, the others are physicians i work closely with....

[quote]It would make it unlimited[/quote] Incorrect. Again, it would not change our scope of practice. We will only be able to do the same things today, as we would if the bill passes. All it would change is not requiring a collaborative practice agreement with a physician for those NPs who have ...

[quote]But, what is she trying to communicate by saying that statement? Either the physician is a shitbag who is never available or she doesn't know how to use a phone. [/quote] Not sure.

[quote]Both the physician and NP violated the current law and should be stripped of any practice rights.[/quote] No it doesn't. Collaborating physician only has to be available by phone.
