What is a Nurse Practitioner and what can he or she do?

Nurse practitioners (NPs) are registered nurses with advanced education.  They have the knowledge and skills to diagnose and treat your illnesses and health concerns.  They can order tests such as x-rays, scans, and ultrasounds; interpret laboratory and other test results; as well as prescribe most medications.  They educate people, families and communities to live healthier lives.

What is a Family Practice Nurse?

A Family Practice Nurse (FPN) is a registered nurse who works in collaboration with the clinicians in our office focusing on health promotion, illness and injury prevention, treatment and monitoring of commonly encountered health problems and injuries and chronic disease management.  These services are provided using a holistic, family-centered care approach.
