4. What is a nurse practitioner?
A nurse practitioner is an advanced practice registered nurse with a master’s degree in nursing and board certification in their specialty. In the case of our clinic, our nurse practitioner’s specialty is in family health. A nurse practitioner can treat and diagnose acute physical and mental conditions as well as order and interpret diagnostic tests, conduct physical examinations, and prescribe medication or physical treatment. Depending on the state’s laws, NPs can work independently of physicians or collaboratively. Because of this, NPs are qualified to meet the majority of patients’ health care needs and can serve as a patient’s primary health care provider. Although doctors have additional training to help patients deal with complex medical problems, many people feel that NPs spend more time with their patients. Experts who study NPs report that their training emphasizes disease prevention, reduction of health risks, and thorough patient education. They promote a comprehensive approach to health care and emphasize the overall health and wellness of their patients.
