Why Choose Nurse Practitioners
NPs focus on health promotion, disease prevention and health education and counseling, guiding patients to make smarter health and lifestyle choices. Since the NP role was created in 1965, more than 50 years of research has consistently demonstrated the excellent outcomes and high quality of care provided by NPs.
The body of literature supports the position that NPs provide care that is safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient, equitable and evidence-based. Furthermore, NP care is comparable in quality to that of their physician colleagues. Patients under the care of NPs have higher patient satisfaction, fewer unnecessary hospital readmissions, fewer potentially preventable hospitalizations, and fewer unnecessary emergency room visits than patients under the care of physicians.
