    I can tell you that there are many drugs that nurse practitioners cannot prescribe.

    What's the point of seeing, for instance, a NP at a drug store, i.e., Walgreen's, if they're not allowed to prescribe what the patient needs.  It's a true waste of time and money.

    For convenience, I recently saw a NP at a local Walgreen's 1 mile away, instead of traveling to see my Board certified in internal medicine doctor.

    I was charged $66.00, and still wasn't able to be treated for my particular problem and was advised to make an appointment to see my doctor.

    Health ins. is antiquated like the typewriter & pager. People don't retire from their 1st job & more people are self-employed. No more $ to CEOs. Inves
