She lectures to nurses on the rewards of holistic nursing and incorporating these therapies into their care.

An NP is a licensed RN with a Master's in Nursing education; therefore called an Advance Practice Nurse. Working with a nurse practitioner is not unlike working with a physician, in the sense that NP's can assess, order and interpret lab, diagnose and prescribe. And in fact, many NP's function as primary care providers. 

What sets NP's apart is our unique emphasis on the health and well being of the whole person with a focus on health promotion, disease prevention, and health education and counseling. NP's guide patients in making smarter health and lifestyle choices.
