About Nurse Practitioners
Adult nurse practitioners are registered nurses with advanced training, national certification and state licensure as independent health care providers. Nurse practitioners work in collaboration with physicians and other members of the health care team. They diagnose and treat patients as well as provide necessary referrals and prescriptions. NPs have an important role to play within the health care system – the core philosophy of the field is individualized care. Nurse practitioners focus on patients’ conditions, as well as the effects of illness on the lives of the patients and their families. NPs make prevention, wellness and patient education their priorities.
