Youre right - many procedures ARE performed by nurse practitioners and PAs. That does NOT guarantee competence. The education and training of even the best of these two - absolutely valuable and well trained groups - does not compare to the education physicians receive. They were not meant to be independent practitioners, but physician extenders. Those who have begun to believe otherwise - both the practitioners and their health care clients - may put themselves or others in harm's way.
