Nurse Practitioners

Nurse practitioners (NP) are nurses who have clinical experience in a specific field and advanced postgraduate education in nursing and medical sciences that enables them to prescribe diagnostic tests and treatments in addition to performing certain invasive procedures. Collaboration between doctors and nurse practitioners increases access to health services, encourages strategies to promote health and prevent illness, and ultimately improves people’s health.

With a master’s degree in nursing and an advanced postgraduate diploma as well as solid experience in a clinical field such as neonatology, nephrology, cardiology, or primary care, nurse practitioners provide nursing and medical care and prescribe diagnostic tests, medication, and treatment according to their area of specialty.
