I don’t understand which lobby agenda is slowing this very logical partial solution to the medical care access crisis. My former family physician had a nurse practitioner and I was provided with excellent timely care by this NP. My new family doc has a competent nurse and my last three visits were to the nurse. I am at an age where I will need more frequent access and I am pleased to see a competent medical caregiver for routine matters. Most people I know are like minded. 

Let the sheep speak loudly.
