Oncology nurse practitioners are both competent and compassionate, and undergo rigorous academic and clinical training to earn the NP next to their name. However, many states still require them to work under the supervision of a physician. 

For this episode, we spoke with Sophia L. Thomas, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC, PPCNP-BC, FNAP, FAANP, president of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, about the importance of nurse practitioners, and why current regulatory models are outdated. 

 

Talk about this article with nurses and others in the oncology community in the General Discussions Oncology Nursing News discussion group.
