A Nurse Practitioner, or NP, is a registered nurse with additional education and experience. Also called a Registered Nurse, Extended Class or RN(EC), an NP can order and interpret diagnostic tests, communicate diagnoses, prescribe pharmaceuticals and perform specific procedures that a registered nurse cannot. They take a more wholistic approach, emphasize health promotion as well as illness/injury prevention, and complement rather than replace the care delivered by other health providers.
Health Link is a 24-hour, 7-days a week telephone information service. Staffed by registered nurses with the knowledge to provide answers over the phone to health care questions and guide you to the care you need. Call anytime (204) 788-8200 or toll-free 1-888-315-9257.
