It was dissapointing to find that some people are not accepting of NP's and don't want "just a nurse" helping them. It was exciting to see that study that showed that Nurse Practitioners are just as competent as physicians. NP's provide care to people and ages ,to who they specialize in, assessing the patient, diagnosing the patient, treating basic illnesses, and injuries Need to be social and know the significance of emotional part of health care. NP's can work in Hospitals, small clinics, nursing homes, and not very often but private practices to. One negative aspect is that only in 18 states can a NP work independently. Questions?? Earnings Nurse Practitioners came onto the scene during WWII because of a shortage of physicians. The 1st NP program was held at Duke University in 1965.

Transcript: a nurse practitioner who, by advanced study and clinical practice, such as in a master’s degree program or certificate program in pediatric nursing, has gained advanced knowledge in the nursing care of infants and children. What makes a Nurse practitioner different than an RN? The term oncology literally means a branch of science that deals with tumours and cancers. The word “onco” means bulk, mass, or tumor while “-logy” means study. Pediatric oncology nursing involves providing care for children who have a variety of cancer diagnoses. This includes administering chemotherapy or other treatments under the supervision of an oncologist, but there are other duties that are just as essential. The nurse is also a part of the support system for the family of the child who is undergoing treatment by explaining treatment plans. He or she must assess the physical and psychological needs of patients and help to treat these, as well. Why I want to be a Nurse Practitioner specializing in Pediatric Oncology? nurse practitioner.

In all 50 states, NP's are granted at least some prescriptive privilege, with state formularies that include controlled substances, to states that require physician supervision and impose formulary limits. Nurse Practitioner with a specialization in Pediatric Oncology What is a pediatric Nurse Practitioner? Susan Brame "Well, being a certified Nurse Practitioner is great because I am able to prescribe medications and perform other tasks that I wouldn't be able to do if I was still just an RN." Renee Wright "I love being a Nurse Practitioner because it allows me to have my own practice in which I can create meaningful bonds and relationships with my patients." Nurses have the honor of consistently being ranked as the most trusted professionals by the public. This trust gives us an opportunity to raise the conversation about the most difficult of questions In our death-adverse society, in which care at all cost continues to increase the overall cost of health care, this is a question that must be deliberated and answer ed. Top-down policies will not provide the solution. Nurses can advocate for death with dignity through local conversations, initiatives, and individual encounters and ignite this transformation. Every nurse can and must be part of leading this change. Lindy Strauss What is a Nurse Practioner?

She's my aunt. How did you complete the interview? She visited my house on 10/8/11. How much of your report did you get from the interview? Few portions of my report were derived from the original interview. There's no need for a doctor if you are a practitioner nurse, you can diagnose your patients and keep them out the hearse, because death is inevitable you want to save some lives, earn $100,000 every year and survive; you aren't just helping yourself, you're helping the community, because a nurse practitioner gives medications preventing sickness; immunity and when you think about it all, you get to diagnose, and even run lab tests without dealing with anything gross. Take part in physical exams Collect patient data Diagnose, treat, and deal with common illnesses Give medical attention to patients Capable of prescribing medications Can order lab tests and interpret the test results Educates the community on health issues Acknowledgements My personal opinion A Poem On Nurse Practitioners AANP (American Academy of Nurse Practitioners) Allows nurses to network and support different concepts and policies altogether.
