With all the hand-wringing by psychiatrists that psychologists are getting prescribing privileges, perhaps no one has noticed that psychiatric nurses are moving in on us in solo private practice and state-run mental health clinics. The clinics prefer them to psychiatrists because they cost less.

In my neck of the woods, one state-run mental health clinic kicked out its psychiatrists and has only psychiatric nurses prescribing.

This again validates my theory of nonpsychiatrists prescribing, which is," There's nothing to it; anybody can do it." That is, until it hits the fan.
