Program Details (Back to Programs)

Nurse Practitioners (NPs) are registered nurses with additional training after finishing nursing school. They have an extended scope of practice and provide care to patients of all ages. Whilst working alongside family physicians and their patients, a nurse practitioner can provide independent primary care services. Their extended scope of practice, through regulation, allows for the provision of the following services:

  • diagnose and treat illnesses and/or injuries
  • perform physical check ups
  • order and interpret diagnostic tests
  • write prescriptions
  • provide counselling and education
  • provide supportive care through illness
  • provide treatments and/or procedures and
  • make referrals to family physicians, specialists and other health professionals

*** Our Nurse Practitioner DOES NOT prescribe narcotics or other controlled substances***
