AGH Observes Nurse Week
BERLIN -- As the health care provider shortage continues to top the national agenda, it is important that the public be aware that there are more than 155,000 nurse practitioners (NPs) in the United States who provide high-quality, cost-effective, comprehensive, patient-centered care to patients across the country.
NPs are licensed, expert clinicians with advanced education (most have master’s and many have doctorate degrees) and extensive clinical training who provide primary, acute and specialty health care services. In addition to providing a full range of services, NPs work as partners with their patients, guiding them to make educated health care decisions and healthy lifestyle choices. The confidence that patients have in NP - delivered health care is evidenced by the more than 600 million visits made to NPs every year.
NPs are informed regarding the unique concerns of diverse patient populations and in touch with the needs of each individual. Through a partnership with the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) and Joining Forces (a White House initiative to raise awareness of the health care needs of veterans, active service members and their families), NPs are increasingly well prepared to care for the important patient group.
National Nurse Practitioner Week, Nov. 11-17, is a time to celebrate these exceptional health care providers and remind lawmakers of the importance of removing outdated barriers to practice so the NPs will be allowed to practice to the full extent of their experience and education.
More than 22 nurse practitioners provide care across the health care spectrum at Atlantic General Hospital and Health System.
