Abstract:

Abstract: The roles for nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs) have expanded in conjunction with roles that physicians have come to play in the past 35 years. Dominant trends have been expanding opportunities in specialty medicine and shifting needs in primary care. The increasing physician shortage will influence the future direction in the medical field; therefore, it is vital for medical educators and physicians to utilize NPs and PAs for successful healthcare reform. Literature indicates that NPs or PAs increase access to care, but the question is whether people feel that this care is as good as the care provided by physicians. The purpose of this study was to compare the quality of care provided by NPs and PAs, as viewed by nursing students. Surveys were administered to 28 California State University, Long Beach, nursing students. Results showed that overall, participants rated NPs' and PAs' quality of care at 80%.
