Thankyou very much for that Darren.

I am interested in finding out if anyone out there has contemplated, or in fact, is doing/done an Nurse Practitioner course through one of the universities. Everytime I mention it at work, I am always faced with such negativity as "What can a nurse do that a doctor can not" Has anyone else found such negativity in their workplace. I know that many positions of NP have already been implemented in other states, and was wondering what other hurdles had to be faced.

Where I work (Vic) we are having a trial of NP's in the emergency department, and very successful too. There will always be lots of negative feedback but lets face it, nurses are good at health education, preventative health, and symptom relief. Sadly sometimes it's the nurses themselves who are negative... I often wonder if this is a fear about taking responsiblity for their practice. Will be interested in hearing what you find out.. I think there is a place for NP's in all fields.
