Career Details
CareerNurse Practitioner (NP)
DescriptionNurse practitioners are considered advanced practice nurses. They are sometimes referred to as "mid-level" providers because they have greater autonomy and a broader scope of practice than many nurses, but not as much autonomy or clinical authority as a physician. Nurse practitioners can diagnose and prescribe medications for mild conditions, such as an ear infection, to complex conditions, such as kidney failure. State boards of nursing regulate a nurse practitioner’s scope of practice and prescribing ability.
