THE PRACTICE

A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a registered nurse who has earned a graduate degree, receiving advanced education and clinical training in a health care specialty.  NPs provide  high quality cost effective care that focuses on the emotional, spiritual, and physical healthcare needs of  patients and families.  This unique approach to care results in high levels of patient satisfaction. NPs aim to treat the whole person rather than just the disease.  There is an abundance of research that supports NP care provides the following benefits: lower medical costs,  less invasive testing and procedures,  superior outcomes,  and more patient involement which leads to overall better health.

What services do NPs  provide?

NPs serve as primary or specialty care providers to diagnose, treat and manage acute and chronic health conditions.  NPs can order and interpret diagnostic tests such as labs, x-rays, or EKGs.  NPs can prescribe medications and healthcare treatments like physical therapy.  NPs collaborate with  physicians  and other healthcare providers such as dieticians, chiropractors, and therapists as needed to provide  comprehensive care.  NPs promote positive health behavious and self-care skills through patient education and counseling.
