A rural-urban comparative study of nonphysician providers in community and migrant health centers.
This is a study of the employment of nonphysician providers-nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and certified nurse midwives-in both rural and urban Community and Migrant Health Centers and of factors associated with their employment, based on a 1991 national survey of 383 Centers.
Results of the survey suggest that nonphysician providers, in particular nurse practitioners and certified nurse midwives, primarily serve as physician substitutes, and are more likely to be employed by Centers that are larger and have affiliations with nonphysician provider training programs.
