Recognizing that nurse practitioners offer the high-quality, cost-effective, patient-centered services needed to help solve the increasing demand for healthcare in the United States, Mayor Rick Danner signed a proclamation declairing November 13-19 as Nurse Practitioners Week in the City of Greer.
Nurse practitioners are licensed, expert clinicians with advanced training who provide primary, acute and specialty healthcare services. They work as a partner with their patients, helping them make educated healthcare decisions and healthy lifestyle choices.
National Nurse Practitioner Week, November 13 – 19, 2011, is a time to celebrate these unique healthcare providers and to remind lawmakers of the importance of allowing nurse practitioners to practice to the full extent of their experience and education.
The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) is the oldest and largest national professional organization for nurse practitioners (NPs) of all specialties. AANP represents the interests of approximately 148,000 nurse practitioners in the country and advocates for the active role of NPs as providers of high-quality, cost-effective, comprehensive, patient-centered and personalized healthcare.
Nancy Durham, President & CEO of Mountain View Clinical Research in Greer, and Terry Williams, a Family Nurse Practitioner with the Greernville Hospital System, accepted the proclamation from Mayor Danner.
