What makes a physician's role fundamentally different from a nurse's?

I have to articulate my desire to become a physician, and I'm having trouble explicitly stating my motivations.

Help me become Ob-Wan Gynobi.

I don’t know whether to be an doctor or go into an allied health field, like physician’s assistant or nurse-practitioner. I want to be in-between Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman and the guy who gets his door knocked on by the gangster late at night and then takes the bullets out on his kitchen table: a healthcare provider who serves a community and is able to really make connections with people.

Nurse practitioner experiences?

Are you a nurse practitioner? Know one? My fiancee is in the very beginning steps to becoming one and we'd like to hear from you: what's your day like? Do you enjoy it? And-- do you need to become an RN before becoming a nurse practitioner? We've heard different opinions on it. Any and all information/opinions appreciated!
