Role of nurse practitioner

Nurse practitioners are health-care professionals who treat the whole person: addressing needs relating to their physical and mental health, gathering their medical history, focusing on how their illness affects their lives and their family and offering ways for people to lead a healthy life and teaching them how to manage chronic illness. Nurse practitioners are educators and researchers who can be consulted by other health-care team members.

Nurse practitioners:

  • diagnose and treat illnesses
  • diagnostic testing
  • prescribe medications
  • refer to specialist
