What is an NP?

To become licensed/certified to practice, Nurse Practitioners hold national board certification in an area of specialty, and are licensed through the state nursing boards.  A nurse practitioner is an advanced practice registered nurse who has completed graduate-level education, either a Master of Nursing or Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree.

Nurse Practitioners (NPs) treat both physical and mental conditions through comprehensive history taking, physical exams, and ordering and interpretation of diagnostic tests.   NPs can diagnose a wide range of acute and chronic diseases (within their scope of practice) and provide appropriate treatment for patients, including prescribing medications.  NPs can serve as a patient’s primary health care provider, and see patients of all ages depending on their specialty (family, pediatrics, geriatrics, etc.).  The core philosophy of the field is individualized care that focuses 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.
