Integrative Nurse Practitioner
An Integrative Nurse Practitioner is a nurse who is qualified to treat certain medical conditions in collaboration with a physician. As clinicians, Integrative Nurse Practitioners apply their medical expertise to diagnose and treat health conditions, while incorporating complementary services that emphasize health and wellness of the whole person rather than treating symptomatically. They can order and perform diagnostic tests, diagnose acute and chronic conditions and prescribe medications for conventional clinical treatments in addition to employing holistic services, such as acupuncture and massage therapy.
Integrative Nurse Practitioners emphasize the well-being of the whole person, focusing on health promotion, disease prevention, and health education and counseling for patients interested in making better lifestyle choices. They emphasize the multifaceted interplay that nutrition, activity, sleep and stress have on our overall health. During your consultation, an Integrative Nurse Practitioner will develop a personalized treatment plan just for you that incorporates both conventional and complementary services to help you achieve your health and wellness goals.
A consultation with one of our Integrative Nurse Practitioners can benefit almost anyone who is motivated to make positive health and lifestyle choices and for those interested in disease prevention. Patients with acute and chronic health conditions can also benefit from a consultation.
