Philadelphia Nurse Practitioner Jobs Overview

With a specialization in primary care, a nurse practitioner is qualified to manage 80 to 90% of a doctor's caseload. Nurse practitioners allow patients to get seen in half the time and spend twice the time talking about their concens as they would with a PCP. They are also more affordable for patients who are uninsured or on Medicaid. And with a growing shortage of medical doctors, nurse practitioner jobs are essential to the U.S. medical system.

In 28 states, nurse practitioners practice under the supervision of a physician. The remaining states allow full practice authority to nurse practitioners. They can examine and treat patients, order and interpret tests, and prescribe medication.
