What is a nurse practitioner?


Nurse practitioners are highly skilled nurses with advanced education and clinical training. It takes a minimum of 9 years to train as a nurse practitioner and once fully qualified, they can do many things a GP does.

Practising beyond the level of a registered nurse, a nurse practitioner can make diagnoses, order diagnostics and lab tests, and prescribe medications.
