March 26, 2013 (Minnesota Public Radio) According to a recent report in the Washington Post, the new guidelines being proposed would allow for "tens of thousands of nurses to set up primary-care practices that would be virtually indistinguishable from those run by doctors."

Our nurse guests, Angela Golden and Mary Chesney, stressed that they and their non-physician colleagues already carry a lot of the weight in health clinics, and that they are well prepared to do it.

"I think what's important for the public to know is that every day, advanced practice registered nurses are making those decisions — deciding on drugs, the dosages, what they're going to do," Chesney said. "And that part of the practice is not supervised."
