NP vs PA, what is the difference?
What is the difference between a PA (physician’s assistant) and a NP (nurse practitioner)?
I get this question A LOT. Surprisingly enough, it is not just from those outside of the healthcare realm, it comes from my peers as well.
As I was looking for some sassy graphic to go with a post about my first few days in my role as an emergency room NP, I came across this link comparing not just NPs, PAs, but Physicians as well. Although I think a lot could be added to it, I wanted to get it posted here so I didn’t lose the link.
As I need to get in the shower for my 3rd shift at my new job (wooHoo!), I will leave it at this, and throw a gigantic “you are it!” to anyone that has better links. Every time I say I am going to look something up, or post something later it doesn’t happen…..so I won’t say it!
Anyone have any vitamin C? Don’t think hand washing is gonna keep me from catching what my pathetic immune system has been exposed to this week.
