Happy Nurse Practitioner Week!

More and more people are choosing Nurse Practitioners (NPs) as their healthcare provider. In addition to being a top-notch healthcare provider, an NP is Your Partner in Health, delivering a unique blend of nursing and medical care.

NPs assist patients in making better lifestyle and healthcare decisions. NPs have differentiated themselves from other healthcare providers by focusing on the whole person when treating specific health problems, as well as educating their patients on the effects those problems will have on them, their loved ones and their communities. By providing both high-quality care and health counseling, NPs can lower the cost of healthcare for patients.

For example, patients with NPs as their primary care providers have fewer instances of emergency room visits, shorter hospital stays and often have lower medication costs. This can be attributed to the fact that NPs partner with patients for their health and provide essential information so patients know when early intervention is needed
