Not sure what a Nurse Practitioner is? Please read the following and determine if a Nurse Practitioner is the correct care giver for your health care needs.
Nurse Practitioners are complementary to Family Physicians (FPs) and can be key members of the primary care team. While Nurse Practitioners provide a scope of outpatient primary care services which is similar to their Family Practitioner colleagues, it is recognized that the depth of medical expertise is not the same and there are areas of practice that are not considered within their scope. However, Nurse Practitioners are Registered Nurses with experience and advanced nursing education at the master’s level. Nurse Practitioners autonomously diagnose, treat and manage acute and chronic physical and mental illnesses. As advanced Practice Nurses, Nurse Practitioners do the following:
- Analyze, synthesize and apply evidence to make decisions about their clients’ health care
- Provide a comprehensive range of essential health services grounded in professional, ethical and legal standards within a holistic model of care
- Work collaboratively with their clients to establish measurable goals, and identify and advocate to close gaps in health outcomes
