Equal pay for ‘equal’ work: Inside the NP fight to be paid the same as physicians
Rebekah Bernard MD and Niran Al-Agba MD |
One of the strategic goals of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners listed on their website (now behind a paywall) is for nurse practitioners to achieve pay parity: to be paid the same as physicians. Oregon became the first state to require that insurance companies pay nurse practitioners the same as physicians and now proposed legislation would do the same in Washington state. To discuss the implications of pay parity in Washington and elsewhere, we are also joined by the past president of the Washington state radiological society, Dr. Pooja Voria.
