Yes, I'll agree with that, tsuwm, but I don't expect to see falsehooods in a dictionary, either.

Specifically, I object to the statement "under the supervision of a physician." NP's are licensed independent practitioners, not required to practice under physician supervision in most states. Where "supervision" could be said to exist, it is in the form of collaborative practice agreements that give the NP the option of consulting with or referring to the physician, not direct supervision. (Any competent clinician would do that anyway when in doubt.) The supervising physician is not even required to be on-site. The agreements really exist to placate the physicians who view advanced practice nurses as competition.

Does the role of the Nurse Practitioner differ between the US (where I'm guessing most of you are from) and the UK (where the web site for the dictionary is)? (It's almost a rhetorical question, but an answer would still be appreciated.)

The position doesn't exist in Australia, although I'm sure many nurses would say they fill such a role, especially in inpatient settings.

http://www.nursepractitioner.org.uk/ indicates that NP's do not prescribe drugs in the UK, but they are otherwise similar in scope to US NP's.
