What is a Nurse Practitioner?

Defining a Nurse Practitioner (NP)

Nurse practitioners are expert nurses who work within a particular area of practice, incorporating advanced knowledge and skills. They possess an additional education which allows them to perform tasks that regular registered nurses can’t perform. These are functions mostly carried out by Physicians, except that physicians possess a little more responsibilities than nurse practitioners.

However, in most countries, NPs possess a ‘full practice authority’, which means that they can work alone, and not necessarily under the supervision of a doctor.

Education & Qualification

Nurse practitioners have to have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or a related undergraduate degree. One should also graduate from an accredited graduate or a doctoral program, and have a license as a registered nurse.

After acquiring the required education, the NP must pass a national board certifying exam in a specific population focus. This can be in;

  • Family practice
  • Acute care
  • Women’s health
  • Oncology
  • Neonatal
  • Pediatrics
  • Psychiatric-mental health or adult-gerontology.

This particular population focus should coincide with the type of program taken in the graduation program. After achieving certification from the nursing board, they must apply for additional credentials like the APRN license at the state and federal level. These qualifications are meant to prepare the Nurse Practitioners with specialized knowledge and clinical competency to practice.

Services Offered by Nurse Practitioners

Nurse practitioners use a unique approach in offering their services. This is by providing ‘holistic care’ to the patients. In the holistic treatment approach, a nurse practitioner does not focus only on a specific illness but on the general health and well-being of a person. This is done with a focus on disease prevention, general health promotion, health education and counseling, which all aim at improving the patient’s living as well as cut off extra medical in the future.

 

Some of the services offered by NPs include;

  • Managing a patients’ overall care
  • Taking patient histories
  • Authorizing treatments
  • Performing physical examinations
  • Ordering and performing diagnostic tests such as lab work and x-rays. NPs can also interpret the results from these tests.
  • Prescribing medications and other treatments
  • They can diagnose and treat acute and chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, infections, and injuries.
  • They educate patients on how to prevent diseases and enjoy positive health and lifestyle choices.

Certified nurse practitioners usually use a “C” either before or after their credentials (for example, certified Family Nurse Practitioner or FNP-C). The credential ARNP is also employed by some NPs. It stands for advanced registered nurse practitioner, which is a broad class of professionals that includes certified nurse midwives, clinical nurse specialists, and nurse anesthetists.
