The Increased Importance of the Nurse Practitioner

Today, primary care and family medicine practices are quickly becoming the main form of visits and consultations among today’s patients. It has become crucially important for nurse practitioners to be well-trained and well-versed in a range of medical procedures. Professional medical associations are also starting to take notice of the increased role that NPs play in the healthcare industry and are beginning to include them in their associations as a result. This spotlight is sure to get brighter as healthcare reform brings with it a previously underserved patient base.
