NOVEMBER 13 – 19 IS
NURSE PRACTITIONER WEEK
This week is Nurse Practitioner week.
Nurse Practitioners are an essential element of our healthcare system. A nurse practitioner can have almost free rein on medicine in many areas of healthcare. Physicians and nurse practitioners can do many of the same tasks. They can order testing to diagnose disease, put on casts, and debride wounds. They perform such tasks while working with a team to put together a treatment plan or for follow-up care if needed. Access Health Louisiana is so grateful for our Nurse Practitioners this week and every week.
