Family Nurse Practitioner Schools
More people are choosing to see a family nurse practitioner than ever before. The job of family nurse practitioner is as rewarding as it is varied. No two days are the same and you can rest assured that your dedication is appreciated by the people whom you serve. Like doctors, nurse practitioners are primary caregivers. They are able to perform medical examinations, issue prescriptions and give advice and education on health related issues as well as other patient care duties.
Your training as a nurse practitioner will provide you with the skills and knowledge you’ll need to fulfill your responsibilities such as the treatment of physical illness and disorders, the assessment of risk factors and the recording of patient histories. Typical coursework during a nurse practitioner degree will encompass areas of study such as advanced health assessment, physiology, the use of diagnostic tools and techniques, epidemiology, nutrition and nursing theory. Your qualification process at nurse practitioner school will also involve practical clinical work placements during which you will learn and practice in hospitals and health centers under the watchful supervision of experienced healthcare professionals. Your practical work will be assessed in order to maintain the quality and integrity of your nurse practitioner degree education.
The majority of those who graduate choose to become certified. In order to do this must pass an accreditation exam after having successfully completed an American Academy of Nurse Practitioner’s course. Your nurse practitioner degree will afford you opportunities as a private practitioner, midwife, anesthetist, physician’s assistant and a registered nurse in schools, clinics, private practices and hospitals.
