  • Skillman, Susan et. al. “Understanding Advanced Practice Registered Nurse Distribution in Urban and Rural Areas of the United
    States Using National Provider Identifier Data”. WWAMI Rural Health Research Center, February 2012.
    Stated, “… showed that ARNP will go into areas that physician will not."
    Bill Crump looked at study and concluded, “First, comparing ARNPs and CRNAs is much worse than apples and oranges, and should not be included in the same report.
     The data in Table 2 [WAMI Study] does not support the conclusion that is presented in the section on rural practice for ARNPs.  In fact, the data show that more independent practice is NOT associated with more rural practice, so the conclusion is unfounded.  With a study this large, the "crossing of 1" in the relative risk is fairly strong evidence AGAINST their conclusion.  To their credit, they infer this but not clearly enough.”
