Advance Practice Nurses

Advance Practice Nurses (APNs) are making contributions at Memorial in many settings and their offerings to the care that we provide are invaluable. APNs work independently in clinics, side by side with physicians, in our Behavioral Health, Cardiology, Anesthesia Services, ENT, Emergency Department, Health/Wellness/Industrial, Hospitalist, Neurology, Nursing Home/Geriatrics, Oncology, Pediatrics, Primary Care, Pulmonology/Sleep, Urgent Care, and Urology.

Nurse Practitioner- licensed independent practitioners who provide primary and/or specialty nursing and medical care in ambulatory, acute and long term care settings. They are registered nurses with specialized advanced education and clinical competency to provide health and medical care for diverse populations in a variety of primary care, acute and long term care settings. (AANP, 2006)

Nurse Anesthesia- practices the art and science of rendering a patient insensible to pain by the administration of anesthetic agents and related drugs and procedures. They are also educated to assist with pain associated with obstetrical labor and delivery, management of acute and chronic ventilator problems, or management of acute and chronic pain through the performance of therapeutic blocks or other forms of pain management. (AANA, 2006)

If you are interested in learning more about pursuing an APN degree, are currently a student, or seeking a job opportunity at Memorial, please feel free to reach out to Memorial’s Physician Recruiter.
