As the population continues to grow in the USA it is becoming clear that In the near future there will be a shortage of primary care physician access or primary care physicians that will be overloaded with patients sacrificing patient centered care and possibly leading to less than favorable patient satisfaction. The next years the population in the USA is increasing and so is the number of elders. “In 2050, the population aged 65 and over is projected to be 83.7 million, almost double its estimated population of 43.1 million in 2012. The baby boomers are largely responsible for this increase in the older population, as they began turning 65 in 2011. “(Hogan, Ortman, Velkoff, 2014)

Due to the increase in aging population and lac of primary care physicians in the work force there might be a very big disparity in access to healthcare across the population. Nurse practitioners can fill this void if our practice can be standardized accross the nation and if NPs can be given more authority to attend to communities which are lacking in healthcare access and primary care. Randomized studies that compared patient services from NPs and GPs found that nurse practitioner spent more time with patients, billed more effectively and had patients follow up with more visits when necessary. Patients also reported higher satisfaction with nurse practitioner and outcomes were in par with GPs. There is no doubt that NPs will be able to fill this role in the coming future. Nurse practitioners can work together with GPs to soften their work load and work in an interdisciplinary setting to provide efficient and compassionate care to each individual. As nurse practitioners we should always work with the safety of each patient in mind and prepare ourselves to become the best practitioners we can be. (Durie, Roland, Roberts, Leese,Venning 2000).

Nurse practitioners (NP) play one of the most important in the health care system, this is based on the fact that they manage patients overall care; precisely they are entitled to prescrib treatment and medication. Furthermore, they also interpret and order diagnostic tests. Nurse practitioners can be highly considered when looking for primary care providers, this is because Nurses practitioners are found to be providing important health care education and meeting all the medical needs in a health care center. For Nurses practitioners to be strong in an organization, first they must have a higher and greater level of compassion, analytical skills, and self-confidence as some of their top most quality. The ability to properly communication can also be termed as one of the most valuable qualities of NP. (Sangster-Gormley, 2013) With such qualities being in place, institutions will find it easy to fix the gap with NP at the time when there is shortage in primary health care providers. 

Nurse practitioners are very important in an organization, how to improve the understanding of the NP roles really matters a lot. First, institutions and other companies must understand that NP is the one who is responsible for reducing the entire patient’s visits across all the healthcare settings. Therefore, when there is a shortage of primary care providers, insurances and other companies should learn to deploy the great use of NP so that the patients can be kept out of the hospitals, bearing in mind that NP is the primary care provider’s profession that is growing rapidly. (Sangster-Gormley, 2013)
