Nurse Practitioners in Health Care

As stated by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP 2016), nurse practitioners (NP’s) are licensed, autonomous clinicians focusing on preventing and managing disease. NPs often specialize by patient population such as pediatrics, family medicine, or women’s health but may also specialize in dermatology, cardiology, etc.

The role of nurse practitioner was originally created in 1965 and since then has been growing to become a central and important role within the healthcare paradigm. NPs are becoming so important that the AANP’s Quality of NP Practice article has shown that patients under NP’s have higher satisfaction rates, less ER visits, less hospital admissions, and fewer hospital readmissions compared to doctors.

Almost twenty years ago, the Journal of the American Medical Association (2000) published their article comparing physicians to nurse practitioners. The results showed that quality of care between physicians and nurse practitioners were equal in the primary care setting.
