Nurse Practitioners

Interested in working in British Columbia (BC) as a Nurse Practitioner? Health Match BC is here to help!

Nurse practitioners (NPs) are registered nurses who have completed Master’s level clinical education which enables them to blend nursing and medical knowledge to:

  • Autonomously diagnose and treat medical conditions.
  • Order and interpret tests.
  • Prescribe medications.
  • Refer to specialists.
  • Act as a most responsible provider for patient care

NPs are health-care professionals who treat the whole person, an approach that includes:

  • Addressing needs relating to a person’s physical and mental health.
  • Gathering medical history and providing options for health.
  • Focusing on how an illness affects a person’s life and family.
  • Engaging in a person-centred approach to foster a healthy life.
  • Teaching persons how to manage chronic illness.

NPs have advanced practice nursing skills as leaders, program developers, educators and researchers who can be consulted by other health-care team members. Many NPs also have doctoral preparation such as a PhD in nursing or Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP).

NPs work across all health care settings including as primary care providers.
