One unique aspect of Nurse Practitioners is their personalized approach to treating patients. Nurse Practitioners focus on each patient’s entire well being, taking the time to educate their patients and share information on how their health issues will positively and negatively affect not only their body, but how it may impact their loved ones as well.

How are Nurse Practitioners different from Medical Physcians?

Education & Training

A nurse practitioner (NP) is a registered nurse (RN) who has completed advanced education (a minimum of a master’s degree) and training in the diagnosis and management of common medical conditions, including chronic illnesses. Nurse practitioners provide a broad range of healthcare services. They provide some of the same care provided by physicians and maintain close working relationships with physicians. An NP can serve as a patient’s primary healthcare provider.

  • Master’s Degree
  • Licensed by Professional Organizations
  • Board Certified in Their Specialty

Nurse practitioners see patients of all ages. The core philosophy of the field is individualized care. Nurse practitioners focus on patients’ conditions as well as the effects of illness on the lives of the patients and their families. NPs make prevention, wellness, and patient education priorities. This can mean fewer prescriptions and less expensive treatments. Informing patients about their health care and encouraging them to participate in decisions are central to the care provided by NPs.

Personalized
Functional Medicine Approach to Treating Patients

Nurse Practitioners focus on each patient’s entire well being, taking the time to educate their patients and share information on how their health issues will positively and negatively affect not only their body but how it may impact their loved ones as well.

Nurse Practitioner License

The license held by a nurse practitioner allows them to practice independently.  They have received advanced education in nutrition and its’ impact on disease states, and chronic illness. Nurse practitioners provide a variety of services which include:

  • conducting complete medical examinations,
  • diagnosing and treating acute and chronic health problems,
  • ordering diagnostic imaging tests,
  • laboratory tests to assist in making a diagnosis, and
  • prescribing and managing medications.
