Nurse practitioners are advanced practice registered nurses who have obtained a degree in a nurse practitioner specialty. They perform examinations relevant to their specialty, make assessments and diagnose, order and perform diagnostic tests, perform minor surgical procedures, provide medications under the supervision of a licensed doctor. Nurse Practitioner can prescribe medication, examine patients, diagnose illnesses, and provide treatment, much like physicians do. Without nurse practitioners, there could end up being a shortage of highly skilled medical professionals since there simply won’t be enough doctors to go around.
