The Top Doctors Specializing in NURSE PRACTITIONER

Updated as of February 01, 2024

A nurse practitioner is a health care professional who offers a wide range of acute, primary, and specialty care services, either alone or alongside a doctor. As primary care physicians leave the profession faster than they can be replaced, especially in rural areas, nurse practitioners play a larger role as primary care providers. They’re also vital to care in specialized medicine, which has its own physician shortages. There’s a lot of overlap in the roles of nurse practitioners and physicians, but nurse practitioners focus on preventing diseases and promoting the health and well-being of the whole person. Acute care nurse practitioners (ACNP) work in hospitals or acute care clinics. They see patients when they are sick, are admitted to the hospital, have injuries, or have surgical procedures. They treat patients from admission to discharge. They can order diagnostic and laboratory tests to help diagnose diseases. They may do procedures such as intubation, debriding wounds, and putting casts on injuries. They work as part of a health care team to develop a treatment plan and follow-up care. Over 75 percent of nurse practitioners are primary care nurse practitioners, also known as family nurse practitioners (FNP). They can diagnose and treat short-term (acute) and long-term (chronic) problems in doctor’s offices and other outpatient settings. FNPs can work alone in 20 states and under the supervision of a physician in the others.Nurse practitioners may also specialize in specific practice areas such as orthopedics, pediatrics, oncology, gerontology, and psychiatry. They diagnose and treat diseases related to these specialties and serve as part of a patient’s health care team.
