Only independent Nurse Practitioner palliative care clinic in New York.
Nurse practitioners have either a Master's or Doctorate degree. They are licensed, autonomous clinicians who are qualified, skilled, and are authorized to assess, interpret labs and diagnostic tests, diagnose illness and disease and prescribe medication. Under the New York Modernization Act of 2015, a nurse practitioner can practice without the oversight of a physician after 3,600 hours of training.
Professionally autonomy means we have the authority to make decisions and the freedom to act in accordance with one's professional knowledge base. We collaborate with other disciplines.
