Tahoe Forest Health System proudly celebrates all nurse practitioners in our community during National Nurse Practitioner Week, November 10-16.
Nurse practitioners are highly skilled medical providers who bring a comprehensive perspective and personal touch to health care, blending clinical expertise in diagnosing and treating health conditions with an added emphasis on health management and disease prevention.
Decades of research demonstrate the high quality of care that nurse practitioners provide to patients. Patients who see nurse practitioners as their primary care provider often have fewer emergency room visits, shorter hospital stays and lower medication costs. By offering high-quality, cost-effective, patient-centered health care, nurse practitioners are also a clear solution to the shortage of healthcare providers.
Tahoe Forest Health System celebrates nurse practitioners for their contribution to our health and our community.
