I am not a nurse practioner, but I am a Registered Nurse, and have been for 31 years. If you are seeing the Practioner everytime you go in, then you need to find another doctor. Advanced Practice Nurses have their place in medicine, and they take some of the load off the doctor. Unfortunately, a lot of the doctors get lazy and let the APN do all the work, and then they sign off on it.
I'm seeing this with one of the doctors I work with now. His practioner makes hospital rounds, then he comes in and just signs off.
