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)
