What is the difference between a Nurse Practitioner and a Physician Assistant?

Professionals who seek challenging and well-playing healthcare careers may find themselves torn between two comparable disciplines: nurse practitioner and physician assistant. Both nurse practitioners and physician assistants are mid-level practitioners. They are not doctors, but they take on some roles traditionally taken on by doctors, including making diagnoses and prescribing medication. They are valuable partly because of their role within an increasingly expensive medical system; their services are more cost-effective than those of physicians.

NPs and Pas sometimes compete for the same positions. Some specialized positions, though, go to one or the other. Even when they perform similar functions, nurse practitioners and physician assistants draw from different traditions; they are educated in separate schools or departments. Students may  make their program choices based on their healthcare philosophy, their interest in particular specialized roles, and their previous healthcare experience.

The PA tradition draws more from a medical model. The NP model of course draws from the nursing tradition, one that has traditionally included a whole person and wellness approach.
