Advanced Nurse Practitioners
"We are qualified nurses who have had substantial additional training in order to work at an advanced level. We work closely with the other members of the primary care team which includes the GP's, practice nurses, pharmacists and midwives"
The expertise of the ANP in primary care (e.g. GP practices) lies in our ability to operate as a 'generalist'. The ANP provides complete episodes of care for patients of any age and with a wide variety and range of presenting problems and health care needs. This encompasses the provision of evidence based, high-quality care for patients whose issues fall within: urgent/acute episodes, long-term/chronic conditions, health promotion and public health. (RCN, 2012).
