Can a Nurse Practitioner see me for my gynecological issues and annual check-ups? What is the difference between a nurse and a nurse practitioner?


A Nurse Practitioner is a Registered Nurse with advanced education and in most cases a Master's Degree in Nursing. The advanced education allows them to make medical diagnoses, order diagnostic tests and prescribe medication all while working closely with a physician. Nurse Practitioners are certified in their clinical speciality and are licensed through the state they practice in. Our nurse practitioners at Independence Women's Clinic are certified as Women's Health Nurse Practitioners and have masters degrees in Nursing.
