That's because it was National Nurse Practitioner week with this year’s theme being, "Your Partner in Health - The Nurse Practitioner."PowerPoint Presentation: All over the country the career choice was being recognized within the healthcare community and promoted as a great option for people looking to start a new career. Indeed, it is a growing field which is experiencing greater opportunities for nurse practitioners to be more directly involved in patient care.PowerPoint Presentation: Nurse practitioners are registered nurses who have pursued additional education for specific specialties and are licensed to perform many of the tasks required by routine care. They can write prescriptions, make routine diagnoses, and even run standard diagnostic tests.PowerPoint Presentation: Not only are nurse practitioners a great asset to doctors, it's now becoming more common for them to run their own practices which provide primary care for patients.Appalachian Nurse Practitioner Clinic : Appalachian Nurse Practitioner Clinic Consider the Appalachian Nurse Practitioner Clinic in Dahlonega, Georgia as a great example of this phenomenon. The clinic was opened in 2006 and has since provided services to roughly 5,000 patients.: The clinic was originally established with the help of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in order to provide primary care for individuals living in the surrounding area. The key to the clinic's success lies in the fact that it can provide most of the same services one would find at a family doctor's practice yet at a significantly lower cost.: Clinics like these are popping up all over the country as demand for affordable health care continues to rise. In fact, the HRSA continues to support such clinics by offering grants to aid further development.: The Appalachian clinic just received an additional $1.8 million to establish satellite clinics that would expand services outward. By supporting nurse practitioner clinics the HRSA hopes to make affordable health care accessible to people with limited financial resources.The Same Is Happening in Canada : The Same Is Happening in Canada While nurse practitioner clinics are not catching on in the United States as quickly as some would hope, they are spreading like wildfire north of the border. Just this past week (November 2011) a new clinic opened in Saulte St. Marie with a capacity of more than 3,000 patients annually.: The provincial government of Ontario has even developed a special program to encourage the establishment of such clinics in order to meet the healthcare needs of its citizens. One after another, nurse practitioner clinics are becoming a mainstay of the Canadian healthcare system.: Becoming a nurse practitioner is a wise career choice for individuals who enjoy the healthcare field. There are opportunities in all sorts of specialties including family practice, pediatrics, cardiology, urology, and so on.: And with the current nationwide shortage of healthcare professionals of all disciplines, there will be plenty of work available for many years to come. It is a career choice that offers stability, excellent salary and benefits, and the personal satisfaction of being able to provide care for those in need.PowerPoint Presentation: Visit our website at http://nursingjobs-info.com for more information, news and advice on all things nurse practitioner related You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
