What is a Physician Assistant?

  • Physician Assistants (PAs) are licensed and certified health professionals with a graduate level education (Masters degree) who provide a wide variety of medical and surgical services under the supervision of a physician.

What is a Nurse Practitioner?

  • Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners (ARNPs or NPs) are medical professionals who receive graduate level education (Masters or Doctorate) and provide comprehensive care in a broad range of medical services.

What is the difference between a PA or NP and a Physician?

  • PAs and NPs are trained and qualified to diagnose and treat illness and injuries, take medical histories, conduct physical exams, order and interpret tests, assist in surgery, perform a variety of procedures and write prescriptions.
  • The PAs and NPs at Tahoe Fracture work in partnership with our physicians to help ensure that we provide our patients with efficient and effective care.

Can PA’s and NP’s prescribe medication?

  • In Nevada and California, PAs and NPs are authorized to write and sign some prescriptions without a physician co-signature.

What does the “C” in PA-C mean?

  • This means that the PA has passed the certification exam developed by the National Board of Medical Examiners and administered by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).
  • NP’s must also pass a national board certification in the area of their specialty.
