NHRMC Recognizes National Nurse Practitioner Week

November 16, 2018

The American Association of Nurse Practitioners has recognized November 11-17, 2018, as National NP Week. Join us in thanking our Nurse Practitioners for all they do at NHRMC.

Nurse practitioners have earned advanced degrees, certifications and clinical training, and are an invaluable part of care teams in a variety of care settings, both here at NHRMC and across the country.

Nurse Practitioners focus on health promotion, disease prevention, health education and counseling, guiding patients to make smarter health and lifestyle choices. They provide a full range of services in both inpatient and outpatients settings, including ordering, performing and interpreting diagnostic tests; diagnosing and treating acute and chronic conditions; prescribing medications and treatments; and managing overall patient care.
