We've all been sick at one time. Perhaps you, like so many of us, were taken care of by, a Nurse. Or a team of Nurses. Or, perhaps you were lucky enough to have had a Nurse Practitioner take care of you. In case you are unfamiliar with what a Nurse Practitioner actually is, please allow me to briefly summarize. An NP (Nurse Practitioner) is much like an MD / RN in one person. NPs can prescribe medicine, make a diagnosis, send out for Radiology, even do surgery! Just ike an MD. Although, many MDs are amazing, often we as Patients find that the NP may have a somewhat more empathic nature. Many people love being treated by an NP!
