Nurse Practitioners

As a family nurse practitioner the focus in your practice will be on health promotion, managing common acute conditions and chronic illness. Unlike urban practice where patients are too often anonymous, seen only in one context, you will have the opportunity to hold an integrative view of your patients because you will be part of the community, able to understand them in a multi-dimensional way.

You will have the opportunity to participate in collaborative practice with the medical clinic physicians, pharmacy, the community health and home care nurses and the multidisciplinary teams in the hospital.

You will use your skills in providing comprehensive assessments including diagnosing diseases, disorders and conditions. You will initiate health care management, therapeutic interventions and prescribe medications in accordance with the statutory and regulatory standards, limits and conditions.
