HealthCetera on Thursday, March 31, 2016 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM on WBAI 99.5 FM and streamed live at www.wbai.org.
In March, Senior Fellow and co-host of HealthCetera, Kristi Westphaln, joined hundreds of nurse practitioners from across the country on Capitol Hill to chat on hot topics in health care at the 2016 American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) Health Policy Conference.
In this second interview co-host Westphaln interviews Sarah Marlow, Family Nurse Practitioner and professor of health policy is known to her 8K Twitter followers as @MissFNP. Marlow walks us through why full practice authority for nurse practitioners is a hot topic in health care today.
Approximately 205,000 nurse practitioners are currently licensed across the United States. Research has demonstrated that nurse practitioners improve access to health care, achieve high patient satisfaction scores, improve health outcomes, and decrease health costs.
