A nurse practitioner is an advanced practice nurse who has completed a graduate-level education. Nurse practitioners treat both physical and mental conditions through comprehensive history taking, physical exams, and ordering and interpreting diagnostic tests. NP's can diagnose a wide range of acute and chronic diseases and provide appropriate treatment for patients, including prescribing medications. NP's make prevention, wellness, and patient education priorities.
