Welcome to one of the leading states in Maobama
land.

This was already forecast - now just another sign
of what is gonna happen in the very near future
as one of the worst ideas ever presented by the
progressive libtards backfires.

Oh by the way - HHS scandal where she was out trying to extort money from insurance companies
to pay for the money that Congress would not provide.

This administration is not the most open administration ever - far far from it - when
things go to h and handbasket - remember it was
brought to you by the likes of Maobama, Princess
Harry, Nazi Pelousy and the rest of the libtard
dumb as craps.

As the Obama plan takes effect, more and more doctors will "retire" or just plain quit practice, resulting in more severe shortage. Trying to get/reschedule an appointment now takes about 3 months. If the whole mess kicks in in 2014, we will be waiting much longer and treatment will be reduced. Meanwhile Congress exempts itself. It is now illegal for a doctor to treat a medicare patient who who is willing to pay for him/her self w/o involving insurance. When will the idiots who vote for these morons wake up?

I see as usual your comment brought nothing to the table. Perhaps you can disprove in some fashion what was said.

Obamacare will assist in there being a shortage given how it oversee's who gets paid how much, and it won't just be in NM. It will only get worse as time passes too. Such was well spoken of when this public travesty was passed, we're only seeing the tip of the iceberg at the moment - just wait!

NM has ALWAYS had a shortage of nurses and doctors, it is not something new. There used to be billboards all over Albuquerque, and out on the highway begging for nurses. Hard work, long hours, pay okay, but you certainly earn it. People go into nursing, then get burned out and leave it. It is not an easy profession.

Here is a prime example of the apologists for the current administration - they just try to explain away anything that
leads to disappointment of the "anointed one".

Maobamacare will be the death of lots of people - in fact they just admitted that they are trying to form the "death panels".

Simply fact drone clownbot! You need to look at the facts - not to mention that insurance rates are starting to double because of
this bonehead affordable care act which will do nothing to decrease costs - only increase and make the reciepient class more
dependent on the provider class.

Your narrow mindedness, and willingness to blame everything on Obama is absolutely mindless. I began working in hospitals shortly after graduation from HS, and went on to become a nurse. WE always worked short staffed, never enough nurses. There was many a time when the hospitals used Nurse Temp Agencies to fill in. Reagan was President then!

I WILL not stop putting out the truth until the likes of your
dumb as crap party line progressive libtard ideas run out.

You and your kind will be shown the the utopian bs central planners that you are soon - Maobamacare like all dumb as crap
ideas sound good on paper, but when put into play by libtards
who are just looking for control over anything and everything then
that is where the problem begins.

Fine - just let the insurance rates double, let the death panels
begin, let the HHS scandal of strongarming insurance companies for
money to pay secretly for this total failure of a bill that is
being forced down our throats.

Even dumb as crap elected officials are starting to say that this is going to be a huge failure.

Really - wow - what credentials.

Face it clownbot - there will be more shortages, less health
care, more denials and less care under this law.

Of course when the reciepient class gets off their dead a r - s e's
and actually pay up something and get some skin in the game maybe the provider class will not have to work so hard.

Speaking of work - I have to go - hundreds of no loads are depending on the profits my company make to support them.

No the only one that is a clownbot is you. You have no clue as to whom Obama care will benefit. If you educated yourself, and had an unbiased mind, then maybe you would learn.
What credentials do you have to talk about the reason for the nurse/doctor shortage? No, not your hatred of Obama either, that doesn't qualify.

when you come up with some truth, let us know.

Anyone that actually pays for their own insurance knows that premiums have doubled in the last 10 years.

Death panels = lie.

HHS scandal = lie

It is going to need a strong implementation program, which as with all things that need to be done right now, the republicans are blocking for political reasons as they have done consistently at the expense of the country.

they will need more people, more training, more funding, clearer regulations and better management. That is the lesson of this week.

Time to get on with it!

And the recommendation is to use Physicians Assistants (PA's) to work outside the supervision of Physicians. 86 credit hours. You got to be kidding. Oh, they do have Physician in their name and many actually think they are docs and know more than an RN or Nurse Practitioner or CNM.

Succeed...whoever you are...by what measures. What evidence based medical practices by someone with a BA that can get a Master's in 86 hours? This is not a dike that needs your finger in it. Can you cobble it together? Yes. Will you take your Corvette to Jiffy Lube....probably not. Will you take your body to a PA...sure, if your goal is what?

Both PA's and CNP's require 6 years of schooling. A PA takes the same classes as pre med students do. They must earn a Bachelors in one of the hard sciences. A CNP, is a BSN, who then goes onto two more years of classes. A PA may work independently of a physician, but must report to a Physician. They both have to be licensed, and take CE classes.
