A nurse practitioner is a registered nurse with advanced academic and clinical experience, according the American College of Nurse Practitioners [ACNP]. The ACNP says this training enables the Nurse Practitioner to diagnose and manage most common and many chronic illnesses. According the ACNP, "Working in collaboration with a physician, a nurse practitioner provides high-quality, cost-effective and individualized care for the lifespan of patient's special needs.
As a native Spanish speaker, she adds a tremendous comfort level to our patients who prefer to receive their care from a Spanish-speaking health care professional. While much of our staff is bi-lingual, Marta brings the added touch of a native speaker.
