Nurse practitioners are Registered Nurses in the Extended Class RN(EC) who have had additional education and experience at the University level. This preparation provides legislated authority to order and interpret diagnostic tests, diagnose, prescribe pharmaceuticals and perform procedures.
The Nurse Practitioners see patients independently but work collaboratively with the health team to provide comprehensive care that includes health promotion & disease prevention. You will most often see us for well child exams, primary health reviews and for episodic illnesses. At any time, we may consult with a physician to ensure timely responses to your health needs.
