Article Title: Shortage or Maldistribution?: In Reply
Abstract: We agree with his point that the “scarcity” of PMH-APRNs, especially in rural areas, does not necessarily mean a “shortage.” To effectively quantify “shortage,” we would need additional information about the distribution of mental illness across the country. We mentioned this shortcoming of the study in the Discussion section. Nevertheless, whether it is a “scarcity” or a “shortage,” our finding of an uneven distribution of PMH-APRNs in the United States is important and critical for future educational and public policy.
