What is a Nurse Practitioner?
Nurse Practitioners are quickly becoming the health partner of choice for millions of Americans. As clinicians that blend clinical expertise in diagnosing and treating health conditions, with an added emphasis on disease prevention and health management, NPs bring a comprehensive perspective and personal touch to health care.
"Every nurse was drawn to nursing because of a desire to care, to serve, or to help."
Christina Feist-Heilmeier, RN
What can a Nurse Practitioner Do for Me?
There are 23 States and the District of Columbia in the USA that license Nurse Practitioners to have “Full Practice Authority,”which means they are a health partner that can:
- Provide a full range of primary, acute and specialty health care services, including:
Ordering, performing and interpreting diagnostic tests such as lab work and x-rays.
- Diagnosing and treating acute and chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, infections and injuries.
- Prescribing medications and other treatments.
- Managing and counseling patients’ overall care.
- Educating patients on disease prevention and positive health and lifestyle choices.
Your Nurse Practitioner is your true telehealth partner that you can depend on to diagnose, treat, counsel, coordinate care, and provide education.
