The Royal Health Group is proud to offer a Nurse Practitioner program to supplement physician coverage. Nurse practitioners use a nursing model that focuses on holistic patient care, including health promotion and behavior change. All our Nursing Practitioners are licensed and certified to provide diagnosis, treatment, consultation, and follow up care of patients under the direct supervision of a physician.
In Massachusetts, N.P.s have the authority to write prescriptions, including those for controlled substances. Nurse practitioners do routine medical procedures, including minor surgery such as suturing. They also take patient histories, interact with patients, and help maintain effective communication among patients, family members and the patient’s primary physician and surgeon.
Royal’s Nurse Practitioner program is one more example of our commitment to ensuring the Royal Standard of Excellence in everything we do.
