Family Doctors and Nurse Practitioners are different in how they are educated and in their philosophical approach to care. Their care and knowledge overlaps and is complementary, but each has a core expertise that is unique and distinct.
Family doctors and Nurse Practitioners are similar in that both diagnose, treat and manage diseases, order and interpret labs and diagnostic test and prescribe medications. However, Nurse Practitioners cannot order certain diagnostic imaging tests (i.e. CT/MRI). Nurse Practitioners make ideal primary care providers because of their holistic orientation that stresses health promotion and disease prevention through lifestyle intervention.
