Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANP)

The role of Advanced Nurse Practitioner is invaluable. It provides opportunity for patients to receive timely care and negate unnecessarily delay in receiving treatment. ANPs in the community and primary care are able to develop close, long-term relationships with their patients and work in partnership with them to achieve optimum health. ANPs are autonomous in making decisions based on assessment, diagnosis and interpretation of test results. ANPs are able to independently prescribe appropriate medication, evaluate or refer to other specialists if necessary.
