What is a Nurse Practitioner?
A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a registered nurse (RN) with advanced training in diagnosing and treating illness. NPs prescribe medications, treat illness, and administer physical exams. NPs differ from physicians in that they focus on prevention, wellness, and education. NPs specialize in providing all encompassing individualized care.

Why Choose a Nurse Practitioner?
Nurse Practitioners provide patients with the information they need to make decisions about their own health. NPs take the time to listen to patients' concerns, health and otherwise.
NPs concentrate on preventative health care. NPs provide individualized, holistic (all encompassing) care.  Services provided by NPs include:

* Obtain medical histories and perform physical examinations
* Provide immunizations and other preventative child care
* Diagnose and treat illnesses
* Identify, treat, and manage chronic diseases such as diabetes and arthritis
* Order and interpret diagnostic tests such as x-rays, blood work, and EKGs
* Prescribe medications
* Prescribe physical therapy, massage therapy, and other rehabilitation therapy
* Provide education to allow patients to make decisions about their own health
* Perform procedures such as suturing, casting, cryotherapy, and skin biopsy
* Refer to other health care providers
