A Board-Certified Nurse Practitioner (NP) is your best partner in health-- providing high-quality primary, acute and specialty healthcare services. Nurse Practitioners (NP) have advanced college degrees (a master's degree and/or doctoral degree) and advanced clinical training beyond their initial preparation as Registered Nurse (RN). Nurse Practitioners (NP) must pass a national boards examination to receive their certification and must meet licensing requirements within the state that they work. Nurse Practitioners bring a unique perspective to health services in that they place emphasis on both "the care" and "the cure". Along with clinical services, NP's focus on health promotion, disease prevention and health education and counseling-- guiding patients to make smarter health and lifestyle choices. Patients who are seen by NP's report an extremely high level of satisfaction with the care they received. Instead of just treating the illnesses, NP's spend time treating the whole person, guiding their patients to make smarter health and lifestyle choices.
