November 8-14 is National Nurse Practitioner Week, which serves to bring recognition to the NP profession 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!
Today, millions of Americans count on NPs as their health care provider of choice. In fact, patient satisfaction with NPs is at an all-time high, and 80% of adults have been treated or know someone who has been treated by an NP.
In all 50 states, NPs assess patients, order, and interpret tests, make diagnoses, and provide treatment — including prescribing medications. As clinicians who blend clinical expertise with an emphasis on disease prevention and health management, NPs bring a comprehensive perspective to patient care.
To all of our NP partners, and the more than 290,000 NPs in the United States, THANK YOU for all that you do!
