Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Nurse Practitioner?
Nurse Practitioners blend clinical expertise in diagnosing and treating health conditions with an added emphasis on disease prevention and health promotion. Nurse Practitioners bring a holistic perspective and personal touch to health care. Nurse Practitioners complete a master's or doctoral degree program and have advanced clinical training beyond their initial professional registered nurse preparation. Nurse Practitioners undergo a rigorous national certification process, periodic peer review, clinical outcome evaluations, adhere to a code for ethical practices, and engage in professional development to maintaining clinical competency.
What healthcare services are provided by a Nurse Practitioner?
Nurse Practitioners provide advanced primary and specialty care for all types of patients. Nurse Practitioners are trained in the management of a variety of acute and chronic conditions as well as health maintenance. Autonomously and in collaboration with other healthcare professionals, Nurse Practitioners assess patients, order and interpret diagnostic tests, make diagnoses and work with patients to develop treatment plans. Nurse Practitioners prescribe medications, refer patients to other providers as appropriate, and focus on health education and counseling.
