A nurse practitioner (NP) is a registered nurse who has advanced formal training in caring for the sick and knowledge of how to diagnose, treat and manage many common ailments. A background of a nurse practitioner includes knowledge of both holistic and wellness-oriented programs, which spotlight continuing education, risk identification, patient treatment, and preventative care. Like physicians, nurse practitioners provide high-level primary patient care.
