Traditionally at Yale, nurses have been involved in a peer preview process concerning several aspects of practice, though the same was not true of nurse practitioners. Peer review is required for all providers at institutions across the U.S., Davies says, and is meant to help better practice and set goals.

At Yale, nurse practitioners were left out of the process: a survey showed that most were not even aware of the peer review process at all. Since then, a new process has been rolled out and modeled in the oncology division at Yale.
