Frequently Asked Questions

What is a NP?

Nurse practitioners have a broader scope of practice than registered nurses (RNs), which can include autonomous practice with full practice authority. They can operate independent clinics in these areas, providing primary and specialty care services without physician oversight.

What does a NP do?

Nurse practitioners play a pivotal role in healthcare by diagnosing and treating a wide range of acute and chronic conditions, including diabetes, hypertension, infections, and injuries. They are proficient in ordering and interpreting diagnostic tests like lab work and x-rays, prescribing medications, and administering other treatments. Additionally, Nurse Practitioners oversee patients' comprehensive care, offering counseling and education on disease prevention and promoting healthy lifestyle choices. With their advanced training and expertise, nurse practitioners are integral in providing holistic and patient-centered healthcare.

Can a NP prescribe medication?

In most provinces and territories, NPs have the authority to prescribe a wide range of medications, including medications for acute and chronic conditions, as well as controlled substances such as narcotics. However, there may be limitations or restrictions on the types of medications that NPs can prescribe, as well as requirements for collaboration with or oversight by physicians.

How to find your NP license number

To find a nurse practitioner license number, identify the appropriate regulatory body in your province/territory and visit their website or contact them directly to inquire about how to find a nurse practitioner's license number. They may have an online registry or database where you can search for the nurse practitioner's license information.
