Nurse Practitioners: Its about time.

There are different types of nurse practitioners providing care to people of all ages, families, groups and communities. Nurse practitioners work in a variety of health-care settings, including community clinics, health-care centres, doctors’ offices, nurse practitioner clinics, nursing homes, hospitals and the homes of patients.

Meet one of  PEI's NPs Melanie MacCarthy who practices at Harbourside Health Centre in Summerside.

 

Nurse practitioners are registered nurses who have additional education and nursing experience. They are health-care professionals who treat the whole person: addressing needs relating to their physical and mental health, gathering their medical history, focusing on how their illness affects their lives and their family, and offering ways for people to lead a healthy life and teaching them how to manage chronic illness. Nurse practitioners are educators and researchers who can be consulted by other health-care team members
