What is a Certified Nurse Practitioner?
A Certified Nurse Practitioner is an Advanced Practice Provider (APP) who has completed a master's or doctoral degree program and has advanced clinical training. They work in collaboration with physicians to diagnose and treat health conditions. Just like physicians, APPs can make a referral, provide physical exams, order and interpret tests, and prescribe medications.
PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
As a patient advocate I can give patients the knowledge they need in order take care of themselves, and act as their partner in each of their healthcare journeys.
