"We are qualified nurses who have had substantial additional training in order to work at an advance level. We work closely with the other members of the primary care team which includes the GPs, practice nurses, pharmacist and midwife"
The expertise of the ANP in primary care (e.g. GP practice) 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 bases, high-quality care for patients whose issues fall within: urgent/acute episodes, long-term/chronic conditions, health promotion and public health.
