Should I see the Doctor or Nurse Practitioner? Nurse Practitioners are highly trained specialist nurses who have completed further education and training so that they can provide advanced nursing care and prescribe medication. They can provide treatment and advice for many of the problems that traditionally you saw your Dr about in the past. If you are unsure if they can deal with your problem please ask at Reception.
