Value of Nurse Practitioners to the Heath Care System
NPs bring value to Canadians and their health-care system. Research studies about these benefits and patients’ experiences tell us that NPs:
- Involve patients in decisions about their care
- Improve access to primary health care
- Reduce pressures on the health-care system
- Are valued and trusted by patients
- Provide high-quality management of chronic illness (e.g., diabetes, high blood pressure)
