Nurse Practitioners

A family nurse practitioner is a nursing professional who works as an extension of the physician. With extensive training in the field of nursing science, nurse practitioners work closely with patients and families to provide complimentary care in the office setting. Many times, nurse practitioners view their role as one of patient advocate. Rather than preventing a patient’s interaction with the physician, the nurse practitioner works to increase the comfort level and communication between patient and physician to ensure a more thorough visit. Since they are in constant touch with the physician, patients who see a nurse practitioner benefit from being served by two providers. With their advanced degrees in nursing with their compassion for helping patients not only heal but thrive, nurse practitioners are an increasingly invaluable resource within the field of healthcare.
