What is a Nurse Practitioner (NP) ?

A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a registered nurse (RN) with advanced training in diagnosing and treating illness. Nurse Practitioners prescribe medications, treat illness, and administer physical exams. NPs differ from physicians in that they focus on prevention, wellness and education. NPs specialize in providing all encompassing individualized care. Nurse Practitioners (NPs) have been providing primary, acute and specialty healthcare to patients of all ages and walks of life for over 50 years. They are the healthcare providers of choice for millions of patients.

Nurse Practitioners are regulated in the state of North Carolina by the NC Medical Board and the NC Nursing Board.

Why Choose a Nurse Practitioner?

  • Nurse Practitioners provide their patients with the necessary information needed to make decisions about their own health.

  • Nurse Practitioners take the time to listen to their patient's concerns

  • Nurse Practitioners concentrate on preventative health care

  • Nurse Practitioners provide personalized, holistic care
