Women's Health Nurse Practitioner
A Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner is a registered nurse who has completed an advanced nursing education including training in the diagnosis and management of common and some complex medical conditions in female patients. Nurse practitioners provide a broad range of health care services, and have varying levels of autonomy. In some states, nurse practitioners may often function independently of physician involvement.
Nurse practitioners take a great amount of pride in their medical services to the community. They are usually directly involved in diagnosis and treatment procedures, and play an integral part of patient care and recovery. The ability to specialize their career focus and make high-level medical decisions, often leads to a high level of personal and professional satisfaction.
