What is a Nurse Practitioner (NP)?
Nurse Practitioners are nurses that have additional education and licensing to provide primary health care to individuals and families. They can do complete physical examinations, order diagnostic tests like ultrasounds, X-rays or mammograms, order bloodwork to screen for illness or disease, diagnose illness and disease and prescribe medications necessary for you.
When care is beyond the Nurse Practitioner’s scope to manage, a physician is consulted. If necessary, you will be seen by both the NP and the visiting physician. For more information about Nurse Practitioners visit http://www.npao.org
