Job Description for Nurse Practitioner (NP)

Nurse practitioners (NPs) are registered nurses who perform many of the same functions as licensed physicians and generally pursue ongoing education into the post-graduate level of medical study. These practitioners are able to treat and diagnose diseases and conditions and prescribe medicines, and for some insurance companies they serve as primary care providers (PCPs) for patients.

Nurse practitioners typically work in cooperative practice with physicians and fulfill a complimentary role to the traditional medical care that doctors provide. For instance, a doctor may seek to simply diagnose a condition in a patient, while a nurse practitioner will be allowed the time to treat the patient as a whole. They often use doctors' diagnoses and work to incorporate the patient's home environment, family, and mental well-being into a treatment plan. They may go into detail regarding treatment options with the patient and help recommend the best options.

As part of the patient aspect of care, nurse practitioners also focus heavily on the general aspects of wellness. They may suggest diet changes, exercise options, or the cessation of bad habits like smoking and help patients ease into and incorporate new behaviors in order to get well. Nurse practitioners may also refer patients to specialists when it is deemed necessary and may prescribe medication or alter dosages in accordance with a doctor's diagnoses.

To work as a nurse practitioner, a person must first complete the educational requirements to practice as a registered nurse, followed by post-graduate work which includes intensive medical training and may include an internship or residency. Nurse practitioners must have excellent social skills and an aptitude for a care-giving demeanor. Most NPs work in hospital or clinical environments during regular business hours of the week.
