Nursing Career Spotlight
Advance practice nurses are RNs with education and training of at least a Master’s degree. The need for this type of healthcare provider has really grown especially in rural areas where there are a limited number of physicians. Nurse Practitioners can work in clinics and provide much of the same services a physician can offer in these settings. Because nurse practitioners are registered nurses, they will also specialize in educating patients. This is something that nurses do much better than physicians. Many physicians have partnered with APNs as well.
