As a Nurse Practitioner (NP), how many times have you been asked questions like ...hey are you an LPN? Are you studying to become a doctor? Can you prescribe medication? Do I call you 'doctor'? What is an Nurse Practitioner anyways? ... and so on....
There is so much confusion about the NP role from the perspective of patients, public, co-workers and especially our supervisors or employers making the challenges we face much greater on the job.
If our role is this mis-understood, then HOW will NP's be recognized for our unique contribution to health care? How will this give us job satisfaction every day? How can we continue to function under the constraints, lack of respect and lack of recognition within an employer or regional health authority and feeling like there are no other options?
Many of us are dissatisfied with our current employment conditions, pay and lack of autonomy...but did you know that there is something that we can do about that? We don't have to stay inside that restrictive box because there actually are viable options to regain control and freedom in your practise / professional life that you may not have thought of!
