What is a Nurse Practitioner (NP)?

Nurse practitioners are registered nurses who have undergone advanced education and clinical training to obtain a master’s degree. They provide preventive and acute health care services to patients of all ages. NPs take health histories, provide physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, interpret laboratory results and x-rays, prescribe medications, and educate and counsel their patients.

Researchers from Johns Hopkins University and other institutions in Baltimore and Washington, D.C. collected data from clinical trials and observational studies from 1990 to 2008. It is the most complete collection of data that compares nurse practitioner care to the care of other providers, mostly physicians. It was found that the care provided by nurse practitioners when in collaboration with a physician was comparable, but in some cases superior, to that of care provided by physicians only (Carlisle, 2011).
