Advanced Practice Solutions, PA (APS) was founded in early 1998 by nurse practitioners who experienced difficulty finding flexible work environments in which to practice their new skills. Frustrated by lack of options, they formed their own group and worked to obtain contracts first throughout the Twin Cities area of Minnesota and as the years passed, nationwide assignments for traveling nurse practitioners and physician assistants. APS began offering recruitment services several years ago as a natural complement to the highly specialized medical staffing agency. This division is experiencing rapid growth as medical practices discover that midlevel providers can see approximately 80% of the patients typically treated by physicians. Research has clearly demonstrated there is no difference in health outcomes for patients seen by advanced practice clinicians, and their salaries are traditionally 1/3 to 1/2 of the physician rate.
