Emergency nurse practitioners needed to avert A&E 'crisis'

Comment

Kirsty Armstrong; inferior skills to NP? Please explain how a doctor with 10 years of medical education provides inferior MEDICAL skills than a nurse practitioner, you people really, really think you are something for a group that have no organised standardised training, no standardised exams. Having seen the content of these 'advanced practice' courses it is madness that you people are allowed to practice autonomously.
