Alaska Career Colleges: Nursing, Licensed Practical Degrees

Students can work towards degrees in Nurse Practitioner or Family Nurse Practitioner Programs, as well as Registered Nurse Programs.

Although people respect and appreciate nurses most of us probably don't realize how many different types of nurses there are. Among many specializations available, some nurses choose to qualify for more senior (and better-paid) work by taking family nurse practitioner degrees to enhance their professional skills.

Nurse practitioners are licensed to provide primary healthcare at a stage beyond that of a registered nurse. They may diagnose and provide treatment for common illnesses, and they can also prescribe some medicines. A family nurse practitioner specializes in providing healthcare in a family context, working in a private practice, clinic, or hospital, among other locations.

If you are already (or are thinking of becoming) a registered nurse and you want to develop your career as a nurse practitioner you will need to study some advanced topics in nursing. Building on your existing range of expertise you will study subjects such as advanced pharmacology, advanced health assessment, the theory underlying family nursing, diagnostic techniques, and other courses to enable you to provide practitioner nurse services to the highest level. Add those to the skills brought forward from the bachelor's degree you already possess and you will see why the holders of family nurse practitioner degrees can look forward to excellent careers in their chosen field.
