Due to the shortage and dwindling number of primary care physicians, educating advanced practice clinicians such as NPs and PAs is a pressing public health need. NPs and PAs play a significant role in the management of patients with cardiovascular (CVD) and respiratory disease. Overall, PAs/NPs conduct more than 61 million patient visits each year.1 Centers for Disease Control/National Center for Health Statistics data shows that PAs/NPs play an important role in the management of patients with CVD and respiratory disease.
