As a result of population changes and policy reform, models of care delivery are evolving. These changes will inevitably affect how we use the existing workforce to provide patient care. Multidisciplinary models of care are an important component of high-quality and efficient care delivery, and nurse practitioners (NPs) are playing an increasing role in both primary care and specialty settings. From 2008-2016, NPs in primary care increased by 44% with NPs constituting almost one quarter of primary care providers in 2016. Similar trends were seen in specialty settings with almost 1 in 5 practices employing an NP by 2016. This presentation will examine trends in NP employment in ambulatory practices and discuss these findings within the context of current practice and reimbursement policies.
