In addition to being a top-notch healthcare provider, an NP is Your Partner in health, delivering a unique blend of nursing and medical care. NPs assist patients in making better lifestyle and healthcare decisions.

providing high-quality primary, acute, and specialty healthcare services similar to those of a physician. NPs have graduate, advanced education, with master’s degrees or doctorates. All NPs have advanced clinical training beyond their initial professional registered nurse preparation. They bring a unique perspective to health services in that they place an emphasis on both care and cure. NPs diagnose and manage acute episodic and chronic illness. NPs also focus on health promotion, disease prevention, and health education and counseling, guiding patients to make smarter health and lifestyle choices.
NPs provide high-quality and cost effective personalized healthcare in both rural and urban settings and in locations such as clinics, hospitals, emergency/urgent care sites, private physicians, or NP Practices, nursing homes, retail-based clinics, schools and colleges, and public health departments to name just a few. From treating illness to coordination of care and advising patients on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, NPs are fully qualified healthcare providers. Patients who are seen by NPs report an extremely high level of satisfaction with the care they receive.
