UofA Interview Invites & Regrets 2019 in University of Alberta Medical School Posted April 2, 2019 · Report reply On 3/30/2019 at 11:23 PM, Butterfly_ said: Family docs have a similar scope of practice to nursing practitioners. Have you explored that route? I an an RN who's being asked about that a lot. For me personally not being able to match my level of knowledge and expertise with my level of autonomy is annoying. NPs don't have the full autonomy either. Knowing what to do but not being able to implement it due to limited scope of practice is something that can be helped when you're an NP, but just for a short time. After you gain expertise and confidence in your knowledge, there's going to be a mismatch again. It's like your brain is in golden cage. If your doc trusts you, they would just ask you to write orders and sign, but that makes my aspiration and ambition grow even more inflated Nik-, I hope that you keep trying, I'm speculating that with the credentials like yours it might be the matter of gaining even more clinical experience.
