Nurse Practitioners are leading the way in providing high-quality, cost-effective care and helping to solve our nation’s pressing access to health care challenges. Each year, patients turn to NPs in over 1 billion visits for primary, acute, specialty and long-term care across every health care setting. As clinicians who blend clinical expertise with an added emphasis on disease prevention and health management, NPs bring a comprehensive perspective to health care.
To honor the health care heroes working in communities throughout the U.S., Randolph Health is recognizing the critical role of NPs as part of the annual National Nurse Practitioner Week (NP Week) celebration, held November 12-18 this year.
NP Week recognizes the positive impact NPs make in the lives of patients and vital role NPs play in the health of the nation. These NPs practice in clinics, hospitals, emergency rooms, urgent care centers, nursing homes and private practices across the country — wherever patients are in need.
