Flexibility for Nurse Practitioners

NPs often work in ambulatory, acute care or long term care settings providing primary and/or specialty nursing and medical care to individuals, families, and communities. Nurse practitioners use scientific principles and national standards of care as a framework for providing patient care while working independently and collaboratively with other healthcare professionals to assess, diagnose, treat, and manage health concerns.
