Happy Nurse Practitioners Week!


National Nurse Practitioners Week 2018 is November 11–17. This week serves as an opportunity to bring recognition to the NP role and increase awareness of the exceptional care that NPs provide. At Wapiti Medical Staffing, we can attest to the value, experience, and compassion that NPs bring to the medical community. We are proud to have nurse practitioners as part of the Wapiti team!

NPs are highly skilled practitioners with advanced education and clinical training building upon their initial registered nurse preparation. NPs provide high-quality, cost-effective, patient-centered health care. In addition to diagnosing and treating acute and chronic conditions, NPs focus on health promotion, disease prevention, health education, and counseling, guiding patients to make smarter health and lifestyle choices.
  • There are more than 248,000 licensed NPs in the United States. This is a rapidly growing field - the number of nurse practitioners currently licensed to practice in the United States has doubled in the past 10 years.

  • Nurse Practitioners are the health care providers of choice for millions of Americans. NPs conduct more than one billion patient visits annually.

  • By providing high-quality care and counseling, NPs can lower the cost of health care.

  • Studies show that patients who see NPs as their primary care provider often have fewer emergency room visits, shorter hospital stays, and lower medication costs. (Source:
