WHAT IS A NURSE PRACTITIONER?
A nurse practitioner (NP) is a registered nurse with advanced academic and clinical experience, which enables her to diagnose and manage common and chronic illnesses, either independently or as part of a health care team. A nurse practitioner provides care previously offered only by physicians and has the ability to prescribe medications.
Working in collaboration with a physician, a nurse practitioner provides high-quality, cost-effective and individualized care for the lifespan of patient’s special needs. It is documented that nurse practitioners are able to give a higher quality of care at a cheaper cost. The nurse practitioner’s focus is on taking care of the patient’s health and informing the patient on their specific issues, treatment, modifications, preventive measures, and maintenance.
NP’s focus largely on health maintenance, disease prevention, counseling and patient education in a wide variety of settings. With a strong emphasis on primary care, nurse practitioners are employed within several specialties, including neonatology, nurse-midwifery, pediatrics, school health, family and adult health, women’s health, mental health, home care, geriatrics and acute care.
NP’s are educated through programs that grant a master’s degree. A registered nurse is recommended to have extensive clinical experience before even applying to a nurse practitioner program. An intensive preceptorship under the direct supervision of a physician or an experienced nurse practitioner are key compenents to becoming a NP. Upon graduation NPs, must sit for board certfication and are then granted a license to practice after passing exams and proving competence.
