Ultimately most research has shown that nurse practitioners provide a similar quality of care to doctors. This does not mean that nurse practitioners and doctors are the same though. Education and training are different and nurse practitioners are taught from a more holistic lens while doctors have more extensive training.Can I see a nurse practitioner instead of a doctor?
While it can be tempting to want care from someone with the title “Doctor”, nurse practitioners are equally skilled and knowledgeable in their field. Nurse practitioners are typically not as booked as doctors, and can fit patients in sooner, providing relief without long delays or wait times.What experience is needed to become a nurse practitioner?
To become a nurse practitioner, candidates must earn a graduate degree. Many graduate schools require students to gain a few years of nursing experience before being accepted into their nurse practitioner programs. Others allow students to gain RN work experience while pursuing their graduate degrees.
