NPs are on the front lines of care, treating patients – in sickness and in health. NPs emphasize healthy living through education, counseling and disease prevention. By treating the whole person instead of isolated health events, NPs work with patients to improve their overall health.
NPs provide advanced primary, acute and specialty care for all types of patients. In every state, NPs assess patients, order and interpret tests, make diagnoses and provide treatment – including prescribing medications.
NPs practice where patients need them most. You may be one of millions of Americans who struggle to find a trusted health care provider where you live. NPs are more likely to practice in urban and rural areas, and they tend to work in a variety of community settings.
