Abstract

The Roots of Collaborative Practice: Nurse Practitioner Pioneers' Stories } UI.IE FAIRMAN School ofNursing Universiry of Pennsylvania Perhaps the p roblems of doctor and nurse are nor so much profes­ sional, as simply human. We [physicians] must learn to share-to share rewards, both psychological and economic-and to share re­ sponsibiliry in a risk-fraught world where our training has taught us to depend only on ourselves .... And we must learn to communicate sufficiently wirh one another so that each may function effeccively, and safely, and reasonably efficien dy. Collaboration, exemplified in this paper by the daily workjng relationship established berv,reen nurse practitioners (NPs) and physicians, and eloquently described above from a physician's perspective by Barbara Bates in 1973, is a much analyzed concept. It has been formalized, theorized, and legislated to rhe point ar wh ich its meaning and implications are no longer assumed and d iffer from purpose to purpose. Nurse practitioners contend chey want to practice collaborarively, somet imes incorporating principles of equaliry of decision making, power sharing, and open communication, for the sake of their patients and, perhaps less altruis­ cically, to advance and ascertain their own place in the health care hierarchy.
