The quality care you provide to your patients stems from your dedication to treating them as a whole person and not just a disease. Getting to know your patients and their unique health care situations is what sets NPs apart, but it’s also so important to stay up to date with the latest clinical guidelines, regulations, research and evidence-based recommendations.
“When a nurse practitioner sees a patient, they don't see a medical diagnosis or a procedure. They see the whole patient, to include the physical, the mental, the emotional and the social, and they bring it in all together, and truly treat the patient.”
