Scope of practice differences

Recommended Posts


I am a certified PA recently licensed to practice in Tennessee.  I have noticed several job openings for PA’s but even MORE so for Nurse practitioners.  This is quite frustrating.

I reached out to a colleague regarding a recent job post that was listed for NP’s.  She reached out to her legal department on my behalf.  She replied, "I spoke with legal and they are double checking but as of right now it has to be an NP because of state laws delegating to an RN. I will let you know if it changes but you are still welcome to apply online.”

Can you provide me with some insight on what this means?

Thank you in advance for your help.
