Working in California hasn’t been as enjoyable as I expected. Many warned me that this state didn’t have a good reputation for the way they treated their providers. I read a great article on Barton Associate’s Blog about nurse practitioner’s being called “midlevels”, something I have started to hear more and more of working in California. Below is the link for you all to read! In Washington (a full practice authority state for Nurse Practitioners), the MD’s, NP’s, and PA’s were all referred to as (equal) provider’s. This is something I plan on continuing to promote.
