Advanced Nurse Practitioners are highly experienced and educated members of the care team who are able to diagnose and treat your health care needs or refer you to an appropriate specialist if needed. They have undertaken a post graduate degree and can prescribe medications. The Nurse Practitioners will often see patients “on the day” for urgent appointments. At Burlington Primary Care the Nurse Practitioners work collaboratively with the General Practitioners.
