Although most nurse practitioners (NPs) are aware of state-level regulations that influence practice, many are unaware of the ways that federal policies affect NP workforce supply and the delivery of primary care. In this investigation we provide an overview of federal initiatives enacted through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that impact the NP workforce. We explore how the law supports NP workforce supply and settings in which NPs provide care. We then describe challenges that may prevent full utilization of the NP workforce. Examining both federal policies and state-level regulations is essential to achieving an increased NP workforce supply and improved access to care.

Biologic Roles of Estrogen Receptor- β and Insulin-Like Growth Factor-2 in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer.| March 22, 2015
Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) occurs in 10–15% of patients yet accounts for almost half of all breast cancer deaths. TNBCs lack expression of estrogen and progesterone receptors and HER-2 overexpression and cannot be treated with current targeted therapies. This work may help elucidate the interplay of metabolic and growth factors in TNBC.
