Indiana Nursing Schools

Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRNs) include clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, nurse anesthetists and nurse midwives. All of these play an essential role in the health care sector. These professionals are usually primary care providers and work at the forefront of providing health care services to the masses. APRNs diagnose and treat illnesses, manage chronic diseases and advise the public on health issues. They also continue their education while working so that they stay updated on all the technological and methodological developments that take place in the field. Along with the Registered Nursing (RN) license and initial nursing education, APRNs are also required to have a Master’s Degree. These professionals also come with speciality roles. For example, nurse practitioners provide acute, primary and specialty health care to people through diagnosis and treatment of injuries and illnesses. Similarly, certified nurse-midwives provide reproductive, gynecological, and primary health care.
