Jill Tucker, RN says:

“Beginning this year, nurse practitioners in New York state, who have two years of full-time practice experience, are no longer required to have physician oversight. This allows nurse practitioners, particularly in under-served rural areas, to assist patients when doctors are in short supply. And with time management being a chief complaint among overworked physicians, nurse practitioners can pick up the slack (while reducing patient costs) and allow doctors to devote more quality time to patient care.”
