Right now, and the laws may be changing sooner than later, a nurse practitioner must have a physician sponsor in most states. Texas is trying to change that so NP can be independent. Let's be practical - anyone who uses a NP can testify they, along with physician assistants, are absolutely the best of the best.

On a side note, I had a nurse anesthesiologist for my colonoscopy today. I wasn't aware there was such a career. He was absolutely amazing and I would never hesitate to use a NA again.
