The Availability of Healthcare Professionals

Watch the interview featuring Susan Apold, PhD, ANP, debating Nurse Practitioner-Guided Care on Fox & Friends. Dr. Apold is the Chairperson of the Board of Directors of the Nurse Practitioner Association, New York State. Dr. Apold suggests that the use of NP’s will help span the care gap created by a lack of primary care physicians.

She outlines how NPs are currently being used and some of the barriers they face in broadening their scope of practice. Her efforts and this conversation serve as an example of how the markets respond to changes in supply and demand.

Upon the conclusion of the recorded video, respond to the following questions listed below:
