A nurse practitioner (NP) is an advanced practice registered nurse and a type of mid-level practitioner. Their focus is on health promotion, disease prevention, as well as health education and counseling, as they guide patients in making smarter health and lifestyle choices. NPs are trained to assess patient needs, order and interpret diagnostic and laboratory tests, diagnose disease, as well as formulate and prescribe treatment plans. NP training covers basic disease prevention, coordination of care, and health promotion, but does not provide the depth of expertise needed to recognize more complex conditions.
