Nurse practitioner role grows, evolves
from Mid-Valley Health via Statesman Journal
In medical practice, there traditionally has been a hierarchy of care providers, with physicians on top, supervising nurses.

And as the Affordable Care Act applies more pressure on health care access — especially primary care — the nurse practitioners' role will likely continue to become more visible to the general public.
