Nurse Practitioners

What are Nurse Practitioners and what can they do?

A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a registered nurse who has completed advanced education (minimum of a master’s degree) and training in a specialty area such as family practice or pediatrics. NPs are trained in the diagnosis and management of common medical conditions, including chronic illnesses. NPs provide much of the same care provided by physicians and usually maintain close working relationships with physicians.
The core philosophy of the field is individualized care. NPs 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 priorities. Informing patients about their health care and encouraging them to participate in decisions are central to the care provided by NPs. Working with pediatricians and other health care providers, NPs have been enhancing the health care of children for over thirty years.
For more information about NPs, visit napnap.org, kidshealth.org and wikipedia.org.
