02/20/13 - Wednesday's Topical Currents examines the shortage of primary care doctors in today’s medical landscape and efforts to give more latitude to nurse care practitioners. The upcoming Florida Legislative session will address the issue. Increased Medicare costs and the Affordable Care Act figure into the picture to give qualified nurse practitioners more latitude in patient treatment. Our guests are Florida International University College of Nursing and Health Sciences Dean and Professor Ora Lea Strickland and F.I.U. Assistant Dean Sheldon Fields.
