Approve the use of nurse practioners in the Yukon

The Yukon is the only jurisdiction in Canada that is not utilizing nurse practioners. Given the increasing shortage of physicians in the Yukon, many residents are left without access to health care. NP's are needed to bridge the ever increasing gap as the need for heath care becomes an issue in the Yukon. Many Yukoners are finding themselves without and family doctor, or in the process of loosing thier current doctors. The only opption for these people is to seek care from the emergency department, over taxing an already heavily over burdened department. We must urge our minister of health to help adress the Yukon's health care deficiencies by utilizing nurse practionioners as the rest of Canada has already done.
