It’s Nurse Practitioner Week: Discover the Top 4 Reasons Families Love Us!

It’s Nurse Practitioner Awareness Week, and we’re celebrating with families everywhere who are living easier and healthier because of nurse practitioner care. From well visits and prevention to sicknesses and emergency treatment, a lot of time, money and stress go into finding the best care possible for the people you love most. Increasingly, nurse practitioners are the provider of choice, and here’s why:

  • Numbers. While other specialties are shrinking, nurse practitioners are growing – and fast. There will be 65,000 more in the workforce in the next 10 years, making it easier for busy moms everywhere to get an appointment.
  • Efficiency. Offices with nurse practitioners can see more patients and charge less for services in the process – a win-win for busy, money-crunched families.
  • Face time. Nurse practitioners usually see fewer patients and have longer office visits, an ideal combination for parents in need of more answers than a 10-minute appointment will allow.
  • Prevention. Nurse practitioners will not only work to treat illness, but they will focus on education and counseling to keep your family healthy, which is all most parents really want.
