A Family Nurse Practitioner is a registered Nurse who has advanced training with either a Masters or Doctoral Degree. As a Nurse Practitioner I am licensed to treat common and complex health problems. This includes assessment, diagnosis and treatment of these conditions. I can write prescriptions and order specific lab and diagnostic tests to aid in the treatment of these conditions. A Nurse practitioner spends a great deal of time in the education process of her patients and their families. My Goal as a Nurse Practitioner is to help you achieve wellness. My main focus is on health promotion and wellness and disease prevention. I utilize a holistic, integrative approach in helping the patient and family to achieve the process.
