Nurse practitioners are medical professionals who have gone beyond the process it takes to become a normal nurse. These individuals take care of patients throughout their lives. Care can start from prematurity and span to the elderly. The types of work a nurse practitioner may partake include observing and examining a patient, diagnosing and treating non-major illnesses, administering shots or other medication, managing issues like high blood pressure and diabetes, treating depression, reading tests given such as an X-ray or a basic lab test, educating patients, counseling patients and families, and giving healthcare and lifestyle advice to those who need it. In all 50 states a nurse practitioner has the ability prescribe medication, but only in 26 states may a nurse practitioner practice medicine on their own. If a nurse practitioner is not able to practice on his or her own, he or she may end up working in someone else's private practice, hospital, clinic or any other healthcare organizations.
