National Nurse Practitioner Week
NPs: Going the Extra Mile
Almost 80 million Americans lack access to primary health care. Our nation must do better, and there is a solution for our neighbors in need. Every day more than 325,000 nurse practitioners go the extra mile to provide better health care in communities nationwide. In fact, patients choose NPs in more than 1 billion visits each year. NPs provide high-quality health care — from primary care to acute and specialty care for all types of patients. In every state, NPs assess patients, order and interpret tests, make diagnoses and provide treatment — including prescribing medications. During National Nurse Practitioner Week, DeSales University is celebrating the outstanding contributions of nurse practitioners in Pennsylvania and across the country. This week, be sure to thank NPs for delivering care patients trust — and consider an NP for your health care needs.
