The Nurse Practitioner FAQ

The NP FAQ provides answers to the questions that prospective nurse practitioners ask most commonly. Everything from requirements to become an nurse practitioner, to the scope of practice for the different NP specializations, to how a nurse practitioner’s role and responsibilities differ from those of nurse anesthetists, physician assistants and other advanced health and nursing careers. Over time, additional questions and question sets will be added to the FAQ, to provide detailed information about numerous NP specializations, and to respond to developments and changes in the educational and occupational landscape for nurse practitioners.
