NP
Abbreviation for nurse practitioner. A nurse practitioner is a registered nurse (RN) who has completed an advanced training program in a medical specialty such as family practice, pediatrics or internal medicine. An NP may function as a primary direct health-care provider and prescribe medications. Patients generally appear to be just as happy — and in some cases, happier — to see a nurse practitioner as their primary care doctor, according to a number of studies (British Medical Journal 2000;320:1038-1048). Some NPs fill other roles such as in research rather than in primary direct patient care.
