Description: Recent studies have indicated that there has been a steady decrease of primary care physicians across the United States. In fact, many primary care physicians have ceased operations or retired due to the aging population. Similarly, many doctors have stopped practicing due to higher numbers of uninsured Americans across the country. With fewer medical school graduates than ever before, the only professionals that can fill these voids are nurse practitioners. These professionals have the abilities to treat patients like PCPs, and they continue to be in great demand across the US.
