About

Nurse Practitioners are registered professional nurses who have completed a graduate education program in nursing. They are certified through a professional nursing organization to practice as a Nurse Practitioner. Nurse Practitioners collaborate, consult, and refer patients to physicians when a patient's situation warrants more advanced diagnosis and treatment.
