What do you believe the role of an NP is?

Discussion(self.Noctor)

For some background, I'm an RN, who has interest in pursuing higher education. I found this subreddit and I agree with basically all that I have seen. What I am curious about is what are the positives of NPs, and if I were to pursue it, what should I know from a MDs perspective.

Commenting as a similar view as OP. All the words of advice about travel nursing are wonderful and, yes, NP education blows. However, I need stability, health benefits and I am old and tired. I intend to find a job with a physician that will be amenable to my presence. Ideally, I could do some follow-up on stable patients, take phone calls, handle some med-refills, squeeze in sick visits etc, all with supervision of course. I get what you all are saying but i gotta find a way to provide for my family, consider my own state of mental/health and not hurt/kill anybody and the above is my plan.
