No I don't agree and I think that's exactly what advance nurses are
I believe it's about time nurses are recognized for their education, training and hard work. Nurses are more holistic in their approach to patient care and they do more for the patients physically than doctors do but doctors get all the credit and compensation just because they spend more time in school and pay more for their education. Pharmacists are called doctors these days and there are a lot of pharmacy schools offering 2 years in class and one year clinical rotation to their graduates with a doctor of pharmacy degree. Everyone seems to be fine with that but when it relates to advance nurses who have just as much knowledge as doctors, it becomes an issue for debate. I have had doctors and nurse practitioners take care of me and personally the only difference I noticed is that the nurse practitioner was very present but the doctor seemed very distant especially surgeons. We need to educate the public on advance nurses.
