What’s a Nurse Practitioner?
Nurse Practitioners (NP) are independent health care professionals that improve patient access to health care. An NP can autonomously diagnosis and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, prescribe medications and perform medical procedures.
The philosophy is the NP treats the whole person by addressing needs relating to a person’s physical and mental health, focusing on how an illness affects a person’s life and family, offering ways for a person to lead a healthy life as well as teaching ways to manage chronic illness.
