Nurse Practitioners

An Advanced Nurse Practitioner is a qualified registered nurse who has completed extra training, usually at Masters Level. They can assess, diagnose and treat patients autonomously within their own competence. This often involves prescribing medication, referring to other specialists and offering advice.
