Nurse Practitioners

Nurse Practitioners (NPs) are advanced practice nurses who are licensed to practice medicine. NPs are committed to personalized, high-quality healthcare and are held to the same legal and ethical standards of care as physicians and surgeons. They have been providing primary, acute, and specialty healthcare to patients of all ages and walks of life for nearly half a century. NPs assess patients, order and interpret diagnostic tests, make diagnoses, and initiate and manage treatment plans—including prescribing medication.

HSS NPs serve pediatric and adult patients in an extensive range of practice settings throughout the hospital and its local and regional ambulatory sites. Their specialty and subspecialty areas include:

  • Anesthesia (PACU/OSCU/SDU)
