The above image was recently seen on FB. It was from a magazine in Oregon. It says:
(My doctor) is a Nurse Practitioner
This is confusing for patients but that was the point, right? NPO, who sponsors and put out this ad, is the Nurse Practitioners of Oregon. This is deliberate.
This has to stop. Now.
Please know the term PROFESSIONAL APPROPRIATION and explain to the world this is just wrong.
Protect patients. Protect our profession.
