What is a Nurse Practitioner?

A Nurse Practitioner is a registered nurse who is prepared in education and clinical competency necessary for the delivery of primary health and medical care. Nurse practitioners combine the roles of provider, mentor, educator, researcher, manager, and consultant. An A.R.N.P. is an advanced registered nurse practitioner who performs medical examinations, makes medical diagnosis, and treatment approved by the American Medical Association and Board of Nursing. Each practitioner is registered with the Department of Regulation, as all physicians and other health care providers.

Philosophy: Nurse Practitioners advocate health promotion and disease prevention. They provide educational opportunities for the individual and/or family while also treating their acute and chronic illnesses.
