TPA16 Posted October 17, 2015 Share Posted October 17, 2015 Hi all. Long time lurker and upcoming interviewee for a pa school. Question on np vs pa: I know that the go to answer is "np is nursing model and pa is medical model" but what exactly does that mean? I could look up on google what that means, but i would rather know a more practical explanation from someone in the field! also to my understanding, NPs can only delve into like 3 specialties such as acute, inpatient, and outpatient or something like that? whats that all about and ALSO i know that PAs are always under the supervision of a doctor, but in the medical office i work at, the PA runs the office some days where the doctor isn't there. what law or rule allows this? thank you in advance Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
