Nurse practitioners (NPs) are nurses who have completed a master’s nursing degree or post-master’s training in providing preventive and medical health care to individuals and families in collaboration with a physician. NPs provide comprehensive health promotion services to ambulatory clients, evaluate presenting problems at the client’s initial contact with the primary care system, and provide continuing care to clients with acute illness and stable chronic illness. Nurse practitioners also educate patients about staying healthy. They often take care of special populations such as the rural poor, migrant farm workers, elderly persons, and children. In communities or facilities with few physicians, nurse practitioners are especially important as providers of health care.
