What is a nurse practitioner? Roni and Christine have the answer!
Nurse Practitioners are advanced practice nurses who provide high quality services similar to that of a doctor. Nurse Practitioners diagnose and treat a wide range of health problems. They have a unique approach and stress both care and cure. Nurse Practitioners focus on health promotion, disease prevention, health education and counseling. They help patients make wise health and lifestyle choices. They are truly your partner in health.
Nurse practitioners have graduate degrees and training beyond their registered nurse experience. Many nurse practitioners also have doctorate degrees. Nurse Practitioners have been providing excellent primary care services for almost half a century.
In a few states, like Arizona, Nurse Practitioners can practice independently of physicians.
