Hambleden Clinic

Is a nurse practitioner different from a practice nurse?

A nurse practitioner is very different from a practice nurse. The practice nurse is the person who provides nursing care such as dressings, immunisations, travel advice and cervical smears. In contrast, a nurse practitioner's daily clinical work comprises the examination, diagnosis and prescription treatment of common medical problems such as chest pain, breathing problems, high blood pressure, coughs, feverish illnesses, ear, nose and throat conditions, abdominal problems, joint and bone problems, infections, tiredness, breast lumps, gynaecological problems, and skin problems.
