What is a Nurse Practitioner?
A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a registered nurse with specialized advanced education and clinical competencies. NPs often work in ambulatory, acute care, or long-term care settings, providing primary and/or specialty nursing and medical care to individuals, families, and communities. NPs use scientific principles and national standards of care as a framework for providing patient care while working independently and collaboratively with other healthcare professionals to assess, diagnose, treat, and manage health concerns.
Why should I consider a BSN-RN or MSN-FNP as a Chiropractor?
If you are currently a Doctor of Chiropractic, your scope of patient care is limited by the AMA and insurance providers, but with a BSN-RN and MSN-FNP, you open yourself up to whole new opportunities that the current healthcare ceilings of DCs are restricted by. You can provide prescriptions to your patients and continue to treat with the less invasive procedures you are accustomed to providing. And the best part is, you can file with your patient’s insurance. You can diagnose and treat patients with less scrutiny and a wider range of treatments. You can continue with a holistic approach and practice chiropractic, but with the added benefit of expanding your scope of treatment and patient care.
