Bringing the best of Nursing and Medicine together

Shore Care introduce Nurse Practitioners into their Urgent Care team.

Shore care have taken the initiative to employ Nurse Practitioners. They work alongside their urgent care Doctor colleagues to deliver outstanding and holistic care to the member of our community.

You may ask what a Nurse Practitioner is and what can they do?

Nurse Practitioner’s are independent practitioners, who can work autonomously on their own, like a Doctor or with other healthcare providers across the health sector. Nurse Practitioners combine advanced nursing knowledge and skills with diagnostic reasoning and therapeutic knowledge to provide patient centered care. 

This includes the diagnosis and management for patients including complex healthcare conditions. They do this through assessments, treatment interventions, ordering and interpreting diagnostic and laboratory tests and prescribing medications appropriate for the patient care.

So, in the future you may see a Nurse Practitioner instead of a Doctor but be reassured you will be provided with outstanding care from the whole team.
