Nurse Practitioner Duties
A nurse practitioner often works in a family clinic setting, offering general physician services to patients of all ages. In most cases, the nurse practitioner will work independently of the physician, holding their own hours and prescribing their own treatments and care plans. Some of the primary responsibilities of nurse practitioners include diagnosing and treating patients, as well as conducting physical examinations, taking a record of medical history, prescribing therapy or rehabilitation, performing tests, offering primary and specialty care services for patients of all ages, assisting with or performing surgeries and procedures and educating patients and their families about preventive health and proper care. A nurse practitioner may also be asked to collaborate with the physician or doctor to assist with procedures or decide the best course of action for a specialized medical treatment.
Nurse Practitioner Education Requirements
A nurse practitioner must pursue a high level of education in order to become licensed in the field. First, the prospective nurse practitioner must complete a four-year undergraduate degree, and then move on to obtain a Master of Science in Nursing or a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree. These pathways teach nurse practitioners about communication, patient care and medication management. After acquiring the necessary degrees, a nurse practitioner must become licensed as a RN (registered nurse). They must also obtain state certificates as well as a national license to practice medicine. An NP can choose to specialize in an area that will give them an edge against their competitors.
