  3. 3. NP CareersTo become a nurse practitioner means to take on the responsibilities of acting as doctors, in a lot of fields that have become bereft of licensed physicians. They are nursing professionals, well educated, who are able to diagnose, treat and evaluate the illnesses of a wide range of patients that might otherwise not receive the healthcare they deserve.
  4. 4. Just like doctors, they must continue their education throughout their lives, constantly learning all about the latest advances in medicine, and translating that education into practical methods for treating patients.This also means that the NP careers they choose will often lead them into fields that are more specialized than most physicians will take on.
  5. 5. Oncology NP CareersNurse practitioners that decide to specialize in oncology will do so for a variety of reasons, but most that choose this field for their NP careers will do so because of a dedication they feel towards ridding their patients’ lives of the threat of cancer, in all its ugly forms.

  9. 9. Since they are qualified to act in the place of a doctor, including diagnosis, treatment and in some cases, even minor surgeries, having an emergency nurse practitioner take on this responsibility has enabled local hospitals all over to provide quality emergency care in areas that have been experiencing a severe lack of skilled doctors for some time. http://www.nursepractitionercareerinformation.com
