More Professional Appropriation

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.

When NPs ask about the tension growing between them and us they need to know that this type of PROFESSIONAL APPROPRIATION is the major cause of it. And they are the source, not us.

Read our last article on the subject.

Please know the term PROFESSIONAL APPROPRIATION and explain to the world this is just wrong.

Protect patients. Protect our profession.
