Good news for Quebec medical patients.Reduced wait times. Always a good thing for the patient.

"The professional order representing Quebec physicians has voted to allow the roughly 500 nurse practitioners in the province to begin diagnosing patients in an effort to reduce wait times in the health system and increase access to health care."
